Method

Sausage Rougail:

  • Put some vegetable oil in a hot pot, let it heat up. Cut your sausages in bite size portions.
  • Finely slice 2 cloves of garlic and 3 shallots, put them in the pot and let them sweat until clear. Put your curry, thyme, crushed bay leaves in the pot, stir well to bind everything together. The mix looks dry, it is to let the spices cook.
  • While the spices & herbs cook with the meat, cut your fresh tomatoes. Put 4 tomatoes aside. Cut the rest of the tomatoes in cubes, keep the juice and seeds and throw everything in the pot. Season to your taste with salt, black pepper and a coffee spoon (1 1/2 tbsp) of chilli powder. Put the lid on and let it simmer for at least 1 hour 1/2.
  • Bean Rougail:

  • Finely slice one clove of garlic throw it in a pan and let it cook with your tin of kidney beans. Tomato Rougail Tear off the rest of your tomatoes Finely slice the rest of your shallots add a little chilli powder, black pepper and salt to your taste
  • Peanut Rougail:

  • Mix your peanut butter with some white wine vinegar and chilli powder. The sharpness of the vinegar cuts with the sweetness of the peanut butter.
  • Add some chilli powder to your taste to give it a kick.
  • Spinach rougail:

  • Finely slice your clove of garlic let it sweat in a hot pan with some oil in it. Once they are clear put your fresh spinach in the pan, let them cook with the garlic. Stir and season to your taste.
  • Rice:

  • You need to have the same volume of rice and water. Put your rice in a pot, put the cold water and cover it. Let it cook on a medium heat. Once you can see little hole on the surface, the rice is cooked.
  • Serve it with the sausage rougail. Serve each rougail in a different service plate. The concept of the rougail is to serve many different little things and mix them together. Each rougail is relatively simple to make, it's tasty and never ever failed me!!
