Method

  1. Split the sausage skins, squeeze out the meat, then roll it into small meatballs about the size of a large olive. Heat the oil in a large non-stick saucepan, then brown the meatballs well on all sides until cooked – you might need to do this in batches. Set the meatballs aside.
  2. Add the onion and garlic to the pan. Soften for 5 mins, stir in the spices and rice, then cook for another min. Pour in the stock and tomatoes. Bring to a simmer, scraping up any sausagey bits from the bottom of the pan. Simmer for 10 mins until the rice is just cooked, then stir in the meatballs with some seasoning. Ladle into bowls, scatter with coriander and serve with crusty bread.

This must be delicious with sausages. I have done this with boneless fish filets and it was amazing! I doubled the garlic, replaced vegetable stock by fish stock, replaced the coriander and cumin by 2 shallow tsp of garam masala and also replaced fresh coriander by 2 coriander ice cubes (made by mincing coriander and onion and then freeze it in ice cubes). It looks like a lot of replacements, but this was mainly because I was working with fish, I love garlic and didn't have fresh coriander in hand. I fried the fish in a couple of tbsp of butter diced it and add it to the rice when it was cooked. Really amazing dish! Flavours were truly 5 stars! Can't praise enough about this, and my 18 month old son loved it too.
Note: for 4 people I used with 1 cup of rice instead of just 140gr (didn't seem enough)

This is really tasy and very easy to make. I used sweet chilli pork sausages which added a hint of sweetness and heat. I also added some tabasco sauce and chilli powder for a bit of a kick. Will definitely make this again. My husband loved it!

Really tasty and moreish, I couldn't stop eating it even after I was full! Sausages make instant meatballs, will have to remember that one!

After reading some of the other comments I used a bit less fluid in the meal, so it was more like stew than soup. It was really easy and tasty!

Having read the comments, I halved the amount of stock, but did need to add a little more liquid towards the end. I used black pepper sausages from the butchers and it was delicious.

I'm not usually very goodd with rice - I either under cook it or it comes out over done and stodgy. This dish however was so simple to do and I followed the method exactly that the rice was perfect and my husband thoroughly enjoyed it - not only that he's asked for it again.

The whole family gave this a thumbs up, even my very fussy eldest son. The rice wasn't quite cooked in the time specified so I gave it a few minutes longer.

This was really nice, although I did use 2 pans to save on cooking time. Will try the one pan idea on a weekend when I'm not under deadline :) Would probably increase the amount of rice more next time also - I used 200g this time and 8 sausages - as all of us (2 adults, a 7 year old and a 1 year old) would have had seconds had they been available.

I only used a pint of stock after reading some of the reviews and it was a perfect amount. It was delicious and i'll definitely make it again.

Really enjoyed this. I used some chilli sausages which were lovely. Def don't put in as much stock as they say though as it will end up quite runny. I also added some hot pepper sauce as the other half likes it spicy. I don't think it would serve 4 though. There is just the 2 of us and we polished it off!
