Firstly, start with the onions. Heat about 2 Tbs oil in a large pan and add the sliced onions. Gently fry for 5-10 minutes until the onions are soft and golden. Set aside.
For the tomato relish, add the chopped tomatoes and flavourings to a small pot and allow to reduce on a medium heat for 5-10 minutes until it’s thickened slightly.
In South Africa, Boerewors is almost ALWAYS braaied but you can also pan fry the sausage of your choice. Cook until it’s cooked through but still juicy.
Serve the boerewors in the fresh rolls with some wholegrain mustard, tomato relish and fried onions.
Add some coleslaw on the side.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
