Sausage(spicy devilled)stir-fry with onions and peppers.

What’s in your fridge right now?

Is there a pack of sausage in there?

I’m cooking this Sri Lankan dish using one of the most basic frozen essentials to make a spicy stir-fry.

Sausages are a must in a well-stocked fridge and here’s a recipe using frozen chicken sausages that is versatile enough to adapt to various meals for your family(I’ve added some ideas below).

A spicy one-pot sausage recipe.

Here’s how the sausage stir-fry is done,

First, the sausages are boiled until they are plump and ready to mix with the spicy sauce that includes onions and banana peppers.

The sauce which brings all the flavors together and makes the bland sausages taste good is slightly sweet but super spicy.

It’s made with red chilli flakes, green chillies and black pepper, tomato sauce and soy sauce.

The Sri Lankan devilled sausage stir-fry can be served as a simple appetizer, tailgating dish as well as a side dish for dinner or lunch.

Meal ideas with spicy sausage fry.

  • Great on hot dogs, don’t add any mustard sauce, a little cheese, place them on a baking tray and broil for the cheese to melt.
  • You can also just stuff them, wrap them as they are to make a quick meal.
  • Simple Lunch-egg fried rice is all you need with a few spoons of this sausage stir-fry.
  • Dinner- wraps, again with a little cheese, sliced avocado, absolutely anything you think would go with this sausage recipe.
  • Cut the sausages into smaller pieces and mix them with cooked pasta or noodles to make an easy dinner in a rush.
  • Tailgating or as an appetizer- watching a movie with your family at home or simply entertaining, serve this devil sausage stir-fry.

Making the devilled chicken even simpler.

The recipe below I have given you is when you have access to ALL the ingredients.

But there are times(like a curfew, lockdown or simply keeping your food expense down)when you might not have to all the ingredients to make this devilled sausage stir-fry.

Hey, it happens, so what do we do?

We simply work with what we have.

That means, NOT adding banana peppers, onions, green chillies, turmeric or curry powder. ONLY the sausages with the ginger and garlic.

And for the sauce, you use red chillie flakes(even chilli paste would work here), black pepper, ketchup, sugar, pepper and soy sauce. 

That’s it.

It won’t taste like the Sri Lankan devilled sausage recipe I have posted here but it will do for an emergency cookout.

Stop food wastage-trust me, this is one dish among many of the devilled recipes linked here that does not go in waste.

Except for the occasional capsicum and onion slices of course.

If you should have any leftovers, make them into wraps, to make your omelet. stir-fry with leftover rice or make some sandwich toasts.
