Method

 
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

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
