I’m going to start off this recipe with the WORLD’S BIGGEST CAVEAT: I have never had Currywurst or Bratwurst before making this recipe. So this is my take on Currywurst after extensive research (Googling) and looking at various methods of making Currywurst. From this research I have come to the conclusion that everyone has their own take on how to make Currywurst and I haven’t been able to come to the conclusion about which is the best way. But this is my way and it tasted nice and turned out well! However, if you do know of a more traditional Currywurst recipe, then do let me know!
Currywurst is a German fast food dish which comprises of Fried Bratwurst and covered with a Curry Ketchup Sauce and is traditionally served with chips and is extremely popular! Unfortunately, I have never been to Germany and haven’t been able to try it, so that’s why I’ve made my take.
A point worth nothing that as well as the curry ketchup, Currywurst is usually sprinkled with some curry powder as well, but I skipped this step this time around as I wanted to try it with just the sauce this time around.
- 4 - 6 x Bratwurst Sausages
- 250g Tomato Ketchup
- 1 Tbsp Tomato Paste
- 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 Tbsp White Wine Vinegar
- 1 Tbsp Honey
- 200ml Chicken Stock
- 1 x Onion
- 1 x Garlic Clove
- 2 Tbsp Curry Powder
- 1 Tbsp Smoked Paprika
- 1/2 Tsp Cloves
- 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
- 1 tsp Salt
- Chips to Serve
Very finely dice the onion, and crush the garlic clove, and place into a saucepan in some oil and gently fry on a medium-low heat for 5 minutes.
Add the tomato ketchup, tomato paste, curry powder, paprika, cloves, cinnamon, salt, honey, worcestershire sauce and chicken stock into the onions and cook out for another 15 minutes with the lid on.
While the sauce simmers away, prick the Bratwurst with a fork a few times on both sides. Then lightly fry on both sides for around 12 minutes, continuously turning until a lovely golden brown.
Once the Bratwurst have cooked and the sauce has simmered, blitz the sauce up with a blender until smooth.
Currywurst is traditionally served sliced, covered in the Curry Ketchup, with a sprinkle of curry powder and with a side of chips!
