Sosis Bandari is a tasty Persian fast food from the south of Iran. It’s one of the few Persian dishes that is quite spicy. Of course you can adjust the amount of chilli you use to your liking. But if you ask me, I like Sosis Bandari nice and hot!
In Iran Sosis Bandari is most commonly sold in sandwich shops. You can make your own delicious sandwich with it or serve it to guests, together with baguette or flat bread. It makes the perfect party food!
Ingredients for Sosis Bandari
300 g beef sausage
2 medium onions
5 cloves garlic
3 tbsp tomato paste
6 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp black pepper
Chilli powder to taste
Parsley and chilli peppers for garnish
Wash the potatoes and cut them into small dice. Fry them in the vegetable oil until golden brown. Remove them from the pan and put them on a paper towel, so any excess oil gets absorbed.
Slice the sausages and fry them in the same oil. Remove them from the pan.
Cut the onions in halves, then slice them. Finely slice the garlic cloves. Fry the onions until softened. After about 5 min add the garlic to the pan. Remove onions and garlic from the oil.
Add 3 tbsp tomato paste to the pan. Add 3 tbsp hot water, turmeric, black pepper and chilli powder and let everything simmer over medium heat for about 5 min.
Transfer all the other ingredients back to the pan and combine them.
Serve with bread or fill sandwich baguettes with it. Add some lettuce and khiaar shoor (salty pickled cucumbers) if you like.
