Hiya all.. hope all you lovely people are having a great day! Do drop me comments about what you have been upto. Would love to re-connect with the blogging world :).
I will surely not go into how long its been since I last posted a recipe :). I realised how greatly I miss doing this.
Chorizo is a favourite drug for many.. or should I say pork ;)… I had recently vacationed in Goa for Keshav’s birthday so had picked up my stash of Goan sausages to devour when I wanted :D. Both Keshav & I simply love pork, but I limit myself as I tend to go overboard and eat more than I should.
Bangalore seems to be a boiling pot since a few months.. Our Sunday was spent finishing a cake, delivering it & then a small visit to the Lalbagh Nursery. Here is the cake we did for her..
So yes.. it was a terribly hot Sunday, we just wanted to get back home, watch a series which I wanted to finish as I was on the last season and chill with some beers!! We picked up some Bira on our way back, started watching Dexter & I fixed these sausages up to go with the beers :).
They are perfect to go with something chilled which translates to beer for us because we hate anything sweet, so no cocktails. We are true Bangaloreans when it comes to our poison. Of course the Mangalorean in me loves me Whiskey! :D. But an afternoon drink is always a beer. 🙂
So lets get on with this lovely starter you can fix up for a party or even as a snack to go with some pav/bread.
Goan sausages – 200 gms, remove them from their casing, crumble them & keep aside
Potatoes – 2 small sized, boiled & peeled & mashed roughly into chunks
Onions – 1 large or 2 medium, peeled and diced
Garlic – 5-6, roughly crushed with skin on
Red Chilli powder – 1/2 tsp or more based on your taste
Black Peppercorns – 1/4 tsp, freshly ground
Vinegar – 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves – a sprig
Cooking oil – 2 tsp, the sausages will let out some fat too
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves – 2-3 sprigs, finely chopped for garnishing
Serves: 2-3, Preparation Time: 10 mins, Cooking Time: 20 mins
Heat oil in a fry pan. Set heat to medium. Throw in the chopped onions & a pinch of salt. Add the crushed garlic once the onions turn translucent. Also add the crumbled pork sausages. Add the red chilli powder, the crushed peppercorns. Next add the boiled potato bits, mix well. Add the vinegar, mix well.
Turn heat to low & let the onions caramelise & raw flavours of the spice powders go away. Check & adjust the salt as the sausages are already spiced & salted. You can adjust seasoning accordingly. Throw in the curry leaves a minute before you turn the heat off.
Garnish with finely shopped coriander leaves…
Serve as is just like a starter or with some bread for a snack.
