- Melt the butter in a large sauce pan. Add the leeks and cook on a low flame for about 10 minutes.

- Divide the mix into different portions. Roll each portion into shape of sausages. Gently place the rolled sausages onto a lined tray.
- Whisk the egg whites. Sprinkle about 50 grams of bread crumbs on a large plate.
- Dip the sausages in the egg whites, roll them over in the bread crumbs. Make sure that the sausages are evenly coated with the breadcrumbs.
- Refrigerate the sausages coated with breadcrumbs for about 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, for the relish, heat the oil in a large non-stick saucepan and fry the onions for 20 minutes, or until very soft and just beginning to colour. Add the chilli and garlic to the pan and cook for a further five minutes, stirring regularly.
- Heat cooking oil in a large frying pan. Fry the sausages on a medium to low heat for about 12-14 minutes. Keep turning over on all sides. Make sure that the sausages are cooked on the insides and crispy, golden brown from the outside.
- Serve the sausages hot with an accompaniment of choice.
