Goan Sausage Pulao
I love Goan Sausages! Its hard to find a person who does not. And for those who have never eaten Goan Sausage, treat them to it once and I’m sure they’ll be hooked! Oh that smokey and spicy goodness! Thinking about Goan Sausage makes me hungry all over again! Just can’t get enough of them! Big fan!
So you have probably heard of Goan Sausage Pulao over the years and probably eaten tons of it.I have sometimes found, more often than not, the Pulao to be overly spiced and the very robust taste of Goan Sausage is not to be found in the dish at all. I honestly wish that Indian food were more balanced with each spice been given the opportunity to bring forth its own unique flavor rather than being overpowered by a colossal quantity of spices! After all, it is actually Goan Sausage Pulao and not Goan Sausage Masala Tomato Chilli Spicy Pulao!
So here’s my version of this wonderful and amazing recipe. Actually, it’s my wife’s recipe and she makes it superbly!
Ingredients for Three Servings:
Goan Sausage – 1/2 a Packaged Goan Sausage
Onion – 1 Medium Thinly Sliced
Rice – 1 and 1/2 Cups
Salt – 1/4th Teaspoon
Water – 2 and 3/4th Cups Washed and Drained of all Water
Cooking Oil – 1 and 1/2 Tablespoons
Let’s get Cooking!
In a pressure cooker on medium-low heat, add the Cooking Oil and immediately add the Sliced Onion and sauté.
Once the Onion Slices are semi-translucent, add the Goan Sausage and break up the Goan Sausage into little pieces as you sauté it.
Once the Goan Sausage bits are releasing all their mouth-watering aromatics, add the Rice and stir really well. You will need to sauté the rice in all the goodness in the cooker for at least 6 to 8 minutes.
You can use any Rice you want. It hardly matters.
Then add Water and add Salt. Stir gently. Put cover on pressure cooker and cook for 4 whistles on medium- high heat.
Open the pressure cooker after 4 whistles, turn off heat and allow the pressure cooker to sit unopened for 5 minutes. After that open pressure cooker and fluff up the rice with a fork. Serve hot and enjoy!
Your Goan Sausage Pulao is done and it took hardly any time to prepare!
In my version, the emphasis is on the flavors of the Goan Sausage which is released into the Pulao. The cured meat of the sausage is packed with enough flavor of its own so there is absolutely no need to add to it. At least I think so!
Do make this recipe and do let me know how it turns out! Feel free to drop in your comments and feedback! I’d love to read them!
