Spicy Sausage Rice Recipe - Gordon Ramsay

It has to be said I've loved watching every minute of Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Cookery Course on Channel 4 - fantastic recipes, fast and simple to make.
Not easy to photograph - my picture really doesn't do this dish justice.
Spicy sausage, peppers, red onion, tomatoes and spring onion cooked in one pot with chicken stock white wine and rice.
Top Tip!
I used Tesco Finest Limited Edition 'Hot and Fiery Habanero Chilli Sausages'.
I used 3 fat cloves of garlic and 2 teaspoons of paprika.
The recipe says it serves 4 but we are quite greedy people and just us 2 ate the lot!

To serve 4 you will need:

olive oil, for frying
1 red onion, sliced
1 red pepper, deseeded and chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
5 spiced sausages, e.g. Italian chilli
1 heaped teaspoon smoked paprika
200g long-grain rice
½ glass white wine
500ml chicken stock - I used a Knorr stock pot
4 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
1 tomato - chopped
small bunch of flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped

How to do it:

Add a glug of oil to a heavy-based casserole dish and fry the onion for 5 minutes until soft but not coloured. Add the pepper and garlic and cook for 2 minutes.
Slit the sausage skins and crumble the sausage meat into the pan, then cook over a medium heat for 4–5 minutes until coloured. Add the smoked paprika and mix. Season to taste.
Add the rice and stir well to mix thoroughly and absorb the flavour. De-glaze the pan by pouring in the white wine and scraping any bits stuck to the bottom. Add the stock and bring to a simmer. Cook gently for 15–20 minutes until the rice is tender and the liquid almost entirely absorbed.
Remove from the heat, gently fold in the spring onions, tomato and parsley and serve.

I've really fallen in love with this recipe ever since I saw it on the telly! Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to make it yet mostly because I live in India where we don't get such variety in sausage meat (but I can buy from good frozen ones online). I also don't have access to white wine. Could you give me an alternative to that, if any?

Hi Varsha
You could leave the wine out altogether and I'm sure it wouldn't be noticed.
If you can get sausage meat online just mix it with some chilli powder or other spice that you like before adding it to the dish as per the recipe.
I hope this helps!

I use apple juice instead of white wine in pretty much every recipe

Acrdshyofafuldek - yes apple juice is a brilliant idea!
