Currywurst (German Sausage With Curry Ketchup)

Currywurst (German Sausage With Curry Ketchup) Recipe

Enjoy a German classic with this fantastic Currywurst that's sure to become your new favorite comfort food!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


German Sausage

  • 4 links German sausage (bratwurst, knockwurst, etc), pre-cooked
  • neutral oil (optional, for cooking if uncooked)

Curry Ketchup

  • 1 tbsp neutral oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp curry powder (plus additional for garnish)
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp mustard powder


  1. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and sauté for a few minutes until translucent. Lower the heat to low-medium, then add garlic and curry powder. Sauté for 1 minute.
  2. Add ketchup to the saucepan and keep stirring until a gentle simmer. It might splatter as the ketchup is thick. Add the remaining ingredients for the curry ketchup and stir to mix well. Let it cook for a few minutes for the flavors to meld and for the sauce to reduce a little.
  3. Remove the saucepan from heat and use an immersion blender to
    blend. Alternatively, transfer to a blender to process. The resulting curry ketchup should still be quite thick.
  4. Warm sausages on a skillet or cook them if they come uncooked. Cut the sausages and top with curry ketchup, plus a dusting of curry powder. Serve and enjoy!
