How are you today? So yea! there is something new on the blog as I would be starting the series on Home Matters today. Few weeks ago, I went shopping at Prince Ebeano supermarket and I just felt like eating sharwama on my way out and as I thought about buying, I remembered that I was on a budget and couldn't spend beyond a particular amount for food for the month. So I decided that instead of buying sharwama for N1200, I would make it at home. So went back to the supermarket and bought some ingredients I felt would make a good mix. I tried it the first time with salad cream but didn't get the wow factor I needed until I tried it with Mayonese and I thought it was a simple but perfect mix.
So looking to enjoy a sharwama with friends or family members, here is my simple but sweet recipe to get you started on that hand licking dinner.
1. Lebanese bread
5. Heinz Pepper ketchup
6. A pack of sausage
11. Groundnut Oil
N/B: Please use the quantity of ingredients as deem fit based on the number of people you're preparing it for.
HOW TO MAKE SAUSAGE SHARWAMA
1. Wash your carrot and shred with a shredding machine and set aside on a plate.
2. Wash your cabbage and cut it thinly. I prefer to cut the sharwama than shred it, so the sharwama can have that crunchy feel when eating it.
3. Slice your pepper into a plate. Sharwama is better with a lot of pepper, so you can slice enough for the size of filling you're looking to do.
4. Wash your sausage and boil for about 3 minutes so it's soft.
5. Cut your sausage into medium-sized chuncks. You can replace sausage with well garnished shreds of fried or roasted chicken.
6. Mix your mayonese, fresh pepper and pepper ketchup together in a plate until thoroughly mixed to form sharwama paste.
7. Put your pot on the fire and put in the shredded carrot, sliced cabbage, sausage chunks, sharwama paste, then add curry and thyme, half table spoon of groundnut oil and salt to taste then turn until thoroughly mixed. Leave for about 3 mins for it to heat up.
8. Put your Lebanese bread on a frying pan to heat up on both sides without any oil, but just enough to have both sides hot , then put on a plate.
9. Spread a portion of your sharwama mix on your lebanese bread positioning it in the middle.
10. Fold your bread from one side to the other and enjoy with a cup of cold juice.
Hope you'll love it when you try yours. Feel free to let me know what you think. Thanks.
