Tandoori Sausages

Servings : Serves 4

Whenever we BBQ chicken and steaks, I make a point to also marinate a few sausages in the tandoori marinade, just so I can use them up later in my ‘fully loaded’ hot dogs. The sausages taste AMAZING when cooked this way, and can be enjoyed as is or sliced up and incorporated into other dishes.


  • 500gm sausages of your choice
  • 1/4 cup yoghurt
  • 2 tsp tandoori powder
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 1 tsp garlic paste
  • 1 tsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric powder
  • pinch of red or orange food colouring (optional)
  • juice of 1 lime/lemon
  • 1/4 tsp salt or to taste (some sausages are normally already salted, so add with caution)
  • 2 tbsp oil


Make very shallow slits on the sausages, about 2 or 3 per side.  Mix all the above ingredients and marinate them overnight or for at least an hour.

Grill over a hot BBQ grill or in a 180C preheated oven until plumped up and cooked through.  Serve with sides of your choice.

Enjoy!  🙂
