There are many different ways to eat choris (Goan sausages, for the uninitiated). One of my favourite is this salad version…it is like you’re tricking your brain into thinking it’s healthy food when really, it’s not. But, it’s really tasty! “When I first moved to Bombay, my landlord was Catholic and his mother would sometimes cook us meals in which sausages were a staple. I feel like I’ve grown up on it,” says Karishma Dalal, the owner of The Bombay Salad Co.
The Goan Salad (Rs 270 for a small, Rs 410 for a large) is a mix of sausages got from an aunty in Goa, mixed with beans, black eyed peas, lettuce, spinach, cherry tomatoes, onions, grilled zucchini and peppers, fresh mozzarella cheese and a rosemary balsamic vinegar dressing. It’s a filling salad and I love how the spiciness of the sausage plays off against the cheese and adds lovely flavour to the beans and veggies. It helps that the salad doesn’t skimp on the meat.
The Bombay Salad Co is located at shop 1, 16th Road, Linking Road, Bandra (W); call 26000270.
