Chilli Sausage

I can still clearly remember how enthusiastically we entertained friends every year without fail during Deepavali (Semolina Rava Ladoo &.Mutton Gosht). Also, every now and then when friends came calling, I made it a point to put up a decent meal despite rushing and sweating in the kitchen. However, over the years, the enthusiasm fizzled out. I realise it is pointless entertaining those who have never invited us even for a small meal, moreover, when it came to their festive season, they prefer to holiday or celebrate within their own family.

Please don't get me wrong. I am not being calculative. Just that after some time, you tend to think if it is worth all the effort in the name of friendship. Also, I myself have tremendously slowed down. Unlike those years when I can be on my feet continuously for two days to cook a huge spread of dishes, I now get tired easily. Even so, for the closest friends who stand by me through thick and thin, anytime. They can drop by even within a short notice. These friends honestly, don't expect much. Sometimes they pack food, other times I make a single item (Ayam Goreng Berempah & Fried Prawn Wanton) for the joy and laughter with some wine (Orange Fruity Sangria). The last time they came by, I made this chilli sausage with ingredients always stock up at home. Chilli sausage is a spicy tangy Malaysian style snack, perfect for nibbling/snacking or a quick fix side dish with rice.

10 chicken sausages - slice into rings
1 red chilli - slice
1 large red onion - slice
1/2 tsp belacan/shrimp powder
Some spring onion - slice thinly
1 tsp sugar
Salt as per taste
2 tbsp oil
2 or 3 calamansi lime - slice into two
Heat oil.
Add chilli and onion.
Add sausages, belacan powder, sugar and salt.
Stir and fry over high heat for 2 to 3 minutes.
Off the heat and combine in spring onion.
Serve chilli sausage with calamansi lime.
