Sausage Bites

How was your Onam celebrations? Hope you had a great time with your friends & family. We celebrated Onam at our friend Vinod & Deepthi's  place. I know I didnt wish you Onam. I didnt make anything special for Onam & I felt bad wishing you Onam empty handed. However if you are a Non Resident Malayalee who is waiting to celebrate Onam during the weekend, please have a look at my Onam recipes, hope you will like something. If you have already celebrated Onam and want to taste some non veg stuff, here is a quick option.

I've posted only one sausage recipe before, sausage packets. I got that recipe from one of our friend's when she served it as a starter for a party. This recipe is also from another friend, my dearest friend, Maryann. This recipe is a breeze to make & a total crowd pleaser.

Sausage Bites

Print Pin
Course: Appetiser, Snack
Cuisine: Indo Chinese
Servings: 2 -3
Author: Maria Jose Martin


  • 5 Sausage
  • 1 tsp Ginger & garlic (each grated)
  • 1 medium Onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/4 – 1/2 tsp Pepper powder
  • 1 tbsp Tomato sauce/ketchup
  • 1/2 – 1 tbsp Soya sauce
  • 1 tsp Hot sauce / Tabasco sauce (refer notes)


  • Boil the sausage & cut into bite size pieces.
  • Heat oil in a pan & add finely chopped onion. When it becomes brown add grated ginger & garlic. Fry for 2 minutes & add pepper powder. Mix well & add all the sauces. Combine well & add the cooked sausages.
  • Mix well & keep cooking on low flame for 5-7 minutes. Give it a stir in between & remove from fire when it is roasted well. You can serve this as a starter/appetizer or as a side dish for fried rice.


If you want to make this as a side dish, you can add capsicum, celery etc along with onion & follow the same recipe. I didnt add any salt since the sausage & soya sauce has enough salt. However you can add it as per your requirements. You can also use the small size cocktail sausage for this. You can substitute hot/tabasco sauce with chilli sauce.

  3. that was yumm,, probably cz I am a fan of sausages. Works perfect when u don’t have anything in your refrigerator or may be when you don’t want to make anything elaborate :)

  4. Hi Maria, I’m from Irinjalakuda (near to your place :) ) and
    now settled in UK
    with my family. It was Leeza one of my relative who recommended your website to
    me one year before I think.  I love cooking and always want to do
    ‘Pareekshanam’. I have tried lots of your recipes and it all came out very
    well. When we celebrated my Son’s first birthday (two weeks back), I made
    ‘Sausage Bites’ for around 150 people. It was a huge hit and I don’t know to
    say thank you for such an easy and delicious recipe. I’m planning to make Mutton Biriyani tomorrow..of course your recipe :) Thanks a lot…Joxy

    • Hi Joxy,

      Thank you so much for your lovely comment :) It’s a pleasure to know that the recipes from the site worked well for you. A special thanks to your relative Leeza for recommending this space to you.

      Belated b’day wishes to your little one & May God bless him abundantly! Btw, I do hope the mutton biriyani came out well.

    • Hi Shibu,

  6. Hey Maria,
    I was very happy seeing this one becoz I love chicken sausage.I tried it and it was super..Even my mom-in-law who usually says no to sausage enjoyed it..
    I tried the same with mutton sausage,but the mutton smell was still there..May be the sausage I got was not that good..

    Thank you so much and please post these kind of smart dishes..
