Goan Chorizo Pulao#Improv

When you think of Goa , the first thing that comes to your mind is sausages and cashewnuts. You find so many ladies selling these in Mapusa market. My sister in law buys these from a particular lady only in the Mapusa market, who she has known for many years. 
These rosary (tiny) sausages are purchased from her. They cook so well and are also delicious. Try and make this and I am sure you will love it.

Single Serving
1 Cup(150 Ml) Basmati Rice or Rice of your choice
1½ Cups of Water
1 Medium Onion - sliced
1 Small Stick Cinnamon stick
3 Whole Cloves
3 Whole Black Peppercorns
1 Green Cardamom
1 Bay Leaf
1 Small Chicken Stock Cube
Salt to taste
10 -12 Rosary Sausages
1 Tablespoon Oil

In ½ cup water, cook the sausages till done. Remove the casings and seperate the stock from the sausage. The stock we will use to cook the rice.

Wash and rinse the rice. Keep aside
Heat oil in a pressure pan add the bay leaf, cinnamon, cloves, peppercorns ,cardamom and onions, sauté till onion is translucent. Next add the water, sausage stock, chicken cube and bring it to a boil. Now add the washed rice and cooked sausages, stir it lightly and bring this to a rolling boil. Cover the pressure pan with a lid and cook on high flame for 2 whistles. Let the cooker come to room temperature and pressure is released. Open it and serve hot.
Enjoy this Spicy Goan Chorizo Pulao 

My Notes
I have used only one tablespoon oil to make this pulao because when you cook the sausage the fat that's releases in the stock releases fat/oil and give the taste required for the pulao.

If you want to add tomatoes, then add it after the onions are translucent. Cook them till they are mushy. I have not added it since the sausages already have enough vinegar in them. I do like too much acid in the pulao.
