Spicy Sausage with Potatoes

Back in college, when I didn’t know how to cook gourmet dishes, I came out with this dish which was a blessing for my taste buds! I made this at times for dinner during exams and also sometimes on Sunday mornings. Yes that’s the specialty of this dish. You can have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

It’s basically a simple mish mash of some basic ingredients which I find tasty without much processing. Even now I like preparing this dish from time to time for my family and they simply love it!

Go ahead and try it! If you feel adventurous mix up your favourite ingredients and let me know about your version 🙂

Tips to adapt:

  • Add in chicken or meat stock to make the dish juicier.
  • For a vegetarian option of this dish, replace sausage with mock meat or vegetables like broccoli.
