Servings 9 mummies


  • 250 g chicken sausage I have used “Godrej Yummiez Breakfast Sausages”
  • 150 g durum wheat spaghetti
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • cup cornflour
  • Tomato ketchup for garnishing
  • Sesame seeds for garnishing


  • Take a bowl, add garlic powder, onion powder, salt and lemon juice. Mix it well.
  • Add the chicken sausages to the bowl and toss it well. Marinate for 30 minutes.
  • Heat water in a large pot over a high flame. Add salt and give it a quick stir. The water should be a little too salty. This will give flavour to the spaghetti.
  • Once it comes to a boil, add the spaghetti to the pot. Don’t break them, they’ll soften in a few minutes. Stir it occasionally. Otherwise, the pasta may stick to each other or to the pot.
  • Check the pasta’s doneness before draining it. It should be al dente or a little chewy. Then drain the water and keep the spaghetti in a bowl. Allow it to cool down a little.
  • Then pour 1 tablespoon lemon juice and cornflour into the bowl. Give it a gentle mix. Make sure you don’t break the strands.
  • To make the sausage mummies, take a sausage and wrap the spaghetti strands around it. The cornflour will make the pasta strands sticky and will keep them in place. Leave a little gap on one end for the eyes.
  • Heat oil over medium flame. Once hot reduce it to low. Then carefully drop the wrapped sausages and deep fry until golden in colour.
  • After frying all the sausages, allow them to cool down a bit. Them dip a toothpick in tomato ketchup and make a pair of eyes on to each mummy. Place sesame seeds on each dot of ketchup.
  • Serve warm with ketchup or any other dip of your choice.
