Food For Thought – Sosis Bandari

“I loath Persian luxury.” -Horace

An Iranian friend of mine made this dish for me a few weeks ago and I had to have it. It’s really, really tasty, especially if served with some crunchy bread.

Sosis Bandari

Super simple and super delicious


  • 6 hot dogs, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 4-5 cups of white potatoes (either 10-12 small or 3-4 large)
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 6 oz tomato paste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup water
  • Salt and pepper


Bake potatoes at 350F for 20-30 minutes until easy stuck with a fork. Time will vary depending on the size of potatoes. Allow to cool and dice into 1 inch chunks.

Over medium heat, heat olive oil in a pan. Add onions, saute for 1-2 minutes and then add turmeric, curry powder, and salt and pepper. Saute for 5 minutes. Add potatoes and hot dogs and cook for another five minutes. Add tomato paste and ½ cup of water. Allow to simmer until sauce thickens, usually 10-15 minutes. Serve warm.


Substitute any vegetarian or vegan “hot dog” for the hot dogs called for in the recipe. Alternatively, try adding sausage or chorizo for a different flavor.

Add Sriracha or chipotle hot sauce to the tomato paste for an extra kick.
