Goulash is a slightly spicy paprika and tomato sauce with peppers originating from Hungary. It is ‘softened’ with the addition of yogurt which also gives it a nice tang.
1 tbsp oil
1 onion -chopped
1 clove of garlic finely chopped or crushed
6 good quality sausages
3 peppers -any colour or colours you like, sliced
100g mushrooms- sliced
1 heaped tsp sweet smoked paprika
1/4 -1/2 tsp chilli powder
2tbsp tomato puree
1/2 chicken stock cube
salt to taste
2-3tbsp natural yogurt or soured cream
In a large pan or wok, fry the onions and garlic until soft over a medium heat.
Remove the skin the sausages and break into meatball pieces add these to the pan and cook until browned. Add the peppers, mushrooms, paprika and chilli and mix well. Next add the tomato puree, stock cube and water. Let this simmer for a few minutes before tasting- the salt content of stock cubes vary enormously so taste before adding any salt if needed.
Continue to let this simmer on the a lowish heat for about 5-10 minutes or however long it takes to cook some rice to go with it.
Just before serving, stir in a couple of tbsp of natural yogurt.
