Currywurst (German Sausages With Curry Tomato Sauce)

You can't go wrong with this German fast food favourite

This curry sauce pairs beautifully with thick and chunky fries; it’s like a spicy tomato sauce, but tastier. Here I have served it with bratwurst sausages and a crunchy coleslaw. Be careful not to go overboard on the cayenne, and taste test as you go.

Serves 4

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped finely
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 Tbsp curry powder
2 tsp paprika
¼ tsp cinnamon
¾ cup tomato sauce
1 Tbsp white vinegar
1 Tbsp runny honey
2 tsp Worcester sauce
Pinch salt and cayenne
4 x bratwurst sausages
4 x long bread rolls
2 cups coleslaw

1. Warm oil in a medium-sized pot. Add onion and garlic, cooking for a few minutes to soften. Stir through the curry powder, paprika and cinnamon. Pour in tomato sauce, vinegar, honey and Worcester and bring to a simmer for a few minutes until thick. Season with salt and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Cool and puree.

2. Grill bratwurst, warm the rolls and serve with coleslaw and lashings of curry sauce.
