Fresh Homemade Sausages without Casing


I love the Kolkata fresh sausages that my friend’s parents get for me, but unfortunately it’s not available in Mumbai. I had some boneless mutton in the fridge, so thought of experimenting  with mutton and  it turned out to be delicious. These fresh homemade sausages are quick and easy to make and satisfies your urge of  having sausages.  You can use boneless chicken or pork or mutton. Here I have used mutton.

Ingredients 
250 grams Boneless cold Mutton cut into small pieces 
30 grams Mutton Fat 
1 big Onion coarsely ground and water squeezed out
1 small Garlic pod finely minced 
1 small Ginger piece finely minced
1 Green Chilli finely minced 
1/2 cup Coriander leaves chopped 
1/2 cup Mint leaves chopped 
Salt to taste 
1 tsp Cumin powder
1/2 to 1 tsp Red Chilli powder 
1/2 tsp Garam Masala powder
3 tbsp Oil





Method 
Take a electric chopper or a food processor. Add the Mutton pieces, finely mince it. Add the fat and mince it once more. Remove it into a bowl. Add the onion, mint, coriander, garlic, ginger, green chilli, garam masala, cumin powder, red chilli powder and salt. Mix it very well for 5 minutes until the fat and the meat binds very well. Grease the steamer plate. Take a steamer and heat up the water. Take a plastic sheet and spread it on the platform. Now apply oil on your palm and on the sheet. Take a big lemon size portion. Roll the mince meat on the sheet and give it a longish sausage shape. Place the sausages into the steamer plate. Steam the sausages in batches for 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the sausages from the steamer. Keep the sausages in the fridge for 30 minutes. If you are in a hurry then you can keep it in the freezer for 10 minutes. Remove it and now the sausages are ready to be fried. Take a pan add 1 tsp of oil, heat it. Add the sausages and toss the sausages till brown in colour. Serve them for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I prefer having it with hot dal and rice. 

P. S. The meat pieces has to be cold so that it is easy to mince. 
The meat has to be finely minced and not paste. 
You can add 30 grams more fat if you want as I have used less fat. 
It is very important that the meat and the fat binds very well.
