Tray Bake Method

  • Preheat fan forced oven to 180°C
  • For the tray bake method we halve the rice to 150 g & use coconut milk.
  • Add sliced onion (fry onion if you prefer), tomato paste, curry powder and coconut milk to large deep ovenproof pan mix to combine. Once combined add in the stock concentrate and water and stir through.
  •  Add in pre-rinsed rice to the sauce in the pan. Then evenly place sausages in the pan.
  • Transfer the pan to the oven on the top rack and cook for 30-40 mins.
  • Add in peas into the pan in the last five minutes of the cook time.


You can omit the rice for grain free, and add extra veg to the steaming trays if you desire... just use only 500 g or 17.6 oz water.
The quality of the sausages have a big impact on this dish, you can substitute chicken breast or chicken thigh utilising the same cooking instructions. It is also popular with chicken sausages or sausages cooked on the BBQ instead of steamed.
The sauce is a runny sauce which is soaked up by the rice for extra flavour.
You can find the curry powder at Asian and Indian grocers or online at Grandma's Pantry.
If you don't have Babas, please be mindful of how strong your curry powder is if you need the dish mild. Babas is quite mild so if using Keens you may not want 1-2 Tbsp. Check out http://skinnymixers.com.au/ingredients/

At step 4 you may need to increase the onion cooking time.
At step 6 if using an Intelli place a tea towel over the steamer lid, use speed 3 and increase cooking time if required. If using a Supercook please use speed 4.
At step 9 DO NOT use your butterfly and be sure to use speed 1.
