Sausages rougail

Sausages rougail

This recipe has been on my blog for a LONG TIME but I never actually translated it (I’m french if you’re wondering), so there we go.

My husband is from Reunion Island so I kinda HAD to jump into that wagon because he just loves this food and I knew nothing about that. I don’t regret a thing, this is the bomb.
So this is a very traditional recipe from there : sausage, chili, tomatoes and spices!

You eat it with basmati rice and grains (red, black, white beans cooked with spices, I’ll talk about that in another post!

This recipe has been approved by my husband so I would say it is VERY GOOD.

Sausages rougail (serves 4) :

  • 6 to 8 smoked sausages (600g)
  • 5 tomatoes (400g)
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 15g ginger
  • 3 small onions
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • Chili (optional)

Put your sausages in a pan with water to cover it and boil it. Rinse and do it all again to get the extra fat away. Drain it, poke it with a fork when cool cut it in 2cm slices.

Crush the garlic, ginger, chili and a little salt together to get a paste. Peel and slice the onions. Dice the tomatoes. Put aside in separate containers.

Put a pan with a little bit of oil on medium high and fry the sausages. Add the onions when the sausages are well browned. Add the crushed ingredients. Fry for 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, put a lid on and let it cook for 10 minutes.

Put 2 cups of water and cook without lid for another 20 minutes.

It’s ready when the sauce thickens up and there is not a lot of it in the pan!
