After some news item about Germany I went reminiscing about my trips there with my step dad. Not one of my fondest memories, but the food there made up for it all! One of my favourite dishes is the Currywurst, or Curry sausage as it can be called. You typically serve it with fries or potatoes and you can add any vegetable you like, but we selected green peas!
Vegetarian Curry Sausage: (serves 2)
- 6 vegetarian sausages (we uses grilled sausages, but you can also use normal vegetarian ones)
- 2 onions or 3 spring onion
- 1 tablespoon of tomato paste
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 tablespoons balsamic
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- 2 tablespoon of curry powder
- 1/2 a tablespoon of soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon chilli powder
- 250 gram ketchup
Heat up a skillet or deep pan and glacé the onion in the olive oil. Once it changes colour add the tomato paste and add a dash of water to make it a smooth mixture. Now add the ketchup, honey and balsamic and let it cook for about 1 or 2 minutes, being careful not to burn it. Add the soy, chilli and half the curry powder and bring to a simmer. Make sure the sauce is not too thick, if so, just add a little bit of water.
Cut the sausages in small rings. If you aren't using vegetarian sausages make sure to bake or grill them beforehand! Add them to the mixture and keep and stir the mixture a bit. Let is simmer for another minute so the sauce can permeate the sausages.
Serve on a plate with the potatoes and veggies of your choice (peas, carrots and other sorts of beans are a recommendation). Add the last of the curry powder by sprinkling it on the mixture and serve.
Watch it! It is kinda spicy!
