I often wish I was a full-time working mum superhero, but I’m not. Therefore putting a Persian banquet on the dining table after a long day at work doesn’t always happen.

Instead I now opt for quick, delicious dishes as part of my daily routine that mean H and little C are fed and happy – usually within 15 minutes of me getting through the front door.

Sosis Bandari is one of my staple fast foods that I swear by as it can be made at breakfast to kickstart the day, lunch or dinner time with minimal effort.

It’s a spicy, flavoursome dish with turmeric and cayenne pepper that comes from Bandar Abbas, a city in the south of Iran. Of course you can tweak the amount of cayenne depending on who you’re cooking for.

Cayenne pepper contains capsaicin, which gives the spice its heat. Note to mummies – it’s also said to help with weight loss! Studies suggest adding cayenne pepper to your diet can boost your metabolism and help with fat burning. 

I use turmeric in everything I cook because its active ingredient, curcumin has been hailed as a powerful antioxidant. It’s the perfect pick-me-up. 

I like my sosis Bandari nice and hot, but H and little C prefer a milder version, so I sometimes skip the cayenne pepper for them. You can also add potato to the dish, although this takes longer when cooking. 

In Iran you can buy sosis Bandari in most sandwich shops and it’s really delicious and comes served in a flat bread. 

Ingredients for sosis Bandari: 

One pack of Lidl Dulano chicken frankfurters 

4 medium white onions

One green pepper (I am using a yellow pepper)

2 small tins of tomato paste

6 tbsp Mazola corn oil

1 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp sea salt

Cayenne pepper to taste

Method

Slice the frankfurters and fry them in a little oil. Remove them from the pan and put to one side.

Now cut the onions into halves, then slice them. Cut the pepper into small pieces. I’m using a yellow pepper for sweetness, but the dish is traditionally prepared using a green pepper.

Onion and yellow pepper

Fry the onions until soft along with your green/yellow pepper. Next add your tomato paste to the pan and fry.
