Sosis Bandari (Spicy sausage and potato sandwich)
Sosis Bandari is a very popular street food from south of Iran. It's always serves as a sandwich and you can basically find it in any sandwich shops. Even though this dish is originally from south of Iran, But it made it's way to the whole country. I mean how doesn't love a spicy sausage sandwich!
The amazing thing is that it's a very easy dish to make at home too. Sosis Bandari is actually an spicy food like many other dishes that originated from south of Iran. You can definitely adjust the heat to your taste but I like mine pretty spicy! Also you can serve this delicious food with fresh parsley, red onion and pickles.
This is definitely one of my top 10 Persian recipes and I hope you enjoy it as well.
You can keep Sosis Bandari in an airtight container in fridge for up to 3 days.
