Comfort Food: Curried Sausages

The weather’s cold and the budget’s tight … the breakdown of our small extra freezer during the week hadn’t been planned for. Not only did we need to toss a huge amount of food, it was pretty depressing to discover from the repairman that it would cost more to fix the fridge than buy a new one. Hence Saturday night’s dinner – curried sausages. However these were delicious, and perfect for curling up on the lounge in front of a movie with. The recipe was found online at, and follows after the jump.

Curried Sausages

  • One kilogram of beef sausages
  • One tablespoon of canola or peanut oil
  • Two medium brown onion (sliced)
  • Three cloves of garlic (chopped)
  • Two tablespoons of curry powder
  • One teaspoon of ground cumin
  • One teaspoon of ground coriander
  • One teaspoon of fresh grated ginger (optional)
  • One cup (250ml) of beef stock
  • One small can of whole tomatoes (lightly crushed)
  • One cup (150g) frozen peas
  • Half a cup of mango chutney
  • One small can of coconut milk
  • Pinch of sugar, salt and pepper to season
  • Squeeze of lemon or lime juice
  • Fresh coriander
  • Naan bread or rice, to serve
  1. Place the sausages in large pan, cover with cold water and bring to a simmer over heat. Simmer gently for two minutes.
  2. Drain sausages and cool, once cool cut into chunky pieces.
  3. Heat oil in a large saucepan, saute onion, garlic and ginger, stirring for three minutes or until soft.
  4. Add curry powder and spices and fry whilst stirring for approximately one minute or until fragrant (the frying releases all the flavours of the spices and is an important part of making a good curry).
  5. Coat sausages in curry mixture, add stock and tomatoes.
  6. Simmer uncovered for about five minutes or until thickened slightly.
  7. Stir in peas and chutney.
  8. Cook for a further five minutes until thickened and peas are heated through.
  9. Stir through canned coconut milk.
  10. Serve with steamed rice of naan bread.
  11. Garnish with fresh coriander and season to taste with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon or lime juice.
