Chilli Sausage Stir Fry Recipe

Backstory:

This recipe is a combination of the Goan sausage recipe by my friend Lizane D’Souza, and another sausage chilli recipe Louella Martiz shared with me on Instagram. It absolutely elevates plain sausages to a lip-smacking Goan sausage chilli fry. I love eating this after gym with either rotis or in lettuce rolls. Super duper easy, and a great recipe to impress your friends with at a house party. Trust me, it disappears in seconds!!  The recipe below serves 1 (as usual, haha)

Ingredients: 

  • 5 sausages
  • ½ tsp jeera (cumin)
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • ½ tsp soya sauce
  • 2 tsp chilli powder
  • Turmeric powder (a pinch)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 onion*
  • 5-6 garlic pods*
  • 1 tomato*

(*you can make this without these ingredients/steps, but I find that it tastes SUPER with these)

How to:

  1. Slice onions & garlic as thinly as you can. (big chunks are also ok, it’s just that it will take longer to cook)*
  2. Heat a pan with 1 tsp oil and when it’s hot, add the jeera (cumin) & turmeric. Cook until all the jeera pops. Stand a little far away, oil might splatter on you. 
  3. Add onions & garlic and fry until golden brown*IMG_4503
  4. Add chopped tomato and cook down until the tomato became maroon-ish in colour. It should almost have a thick jam-like consistency*IMG_4504
  5. Add sliced sausages and fry it a little, until it gets those nice golden brown marks
  6. Add half cup water, salt, ketchup and soya sauce and let it boil until the water evaporates
  7. Let the mix sear for a minute or twoIMG_4505
  8. Serve with rotis/bread/fried rice/in lettuce rolls & enjoy!

Tips:

  • Crucial step: caramelise the onion & garlic well. It packs an incredible flavour
  • Keep an eye on your pan when it’s boiling, make sure it doesn’t boil to a point where it burns the soya 
  • Best to try it with plain sausages since there’s a lot of boiling etc involved, cheese sausages might lose their flavour & dry out
