Germany - Currywurst

It's been over 5 months since I posted. I'm so ashamed! I'm back now though, hurrah. ^_^

Starting back gently with a simple recipe from Germany mainly because I'm all excited because we're having a weekend in Munich in march, hurrah again!

Currywurst is pretty popular over there if Wikipedia is correct. With German people scoffing 800 million portions of it a year.That's quite a lot, nein?

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound bratwurst or other smoked sausage
  • Oil for frying
  • 15 ounces ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 pinch paprika
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder


Slice the sausage into 1/2 to 3/4 inch pieces and fry in some oil until browned nicely.






Put all the sauce ingredients in a small pan and combine well while heating gently.



Put the sausage in a dish (the Germans use paper dishes) and cover with the sauce. Sprinkling more curry powder on top to garnish if you're feeling fancy. I served mine with a bread roll but mostly it's eaten with fries.



It was surprisingly delicious! The tomato curry sauce was really tasty especially with the fried sausage which was always going to be great. I love foods that are quick to whip up for a lunch with a difference. I'm really looking forward to trying some authentic Currywurst in March. Thanks for reading, Auf Wiedersehen!
