Grandma's Curried Sausages

There are many ways to jazz up left over sausages. So much so that I cook extra sausages nearly every time.

Traditional Curried Sausages
I seem to be really getting into a fair bit of cooking lately and ones good enough to write about.

I love to make this delicious old fashioned curried sausages. It is a recipe that was handed down from my mother who was a professional cook at one stage of her life. It is my absolutely favourite way to turn sausages into a fabulous meal and I like to pair this with mash potatoes and vegetables. To me sausages and mashed potatoes are a marriage made in heaven though it can be served with rice too!

English Style Curried Sausages

Serves 4 generously. (freeze one half for a easy meal another time)

6 or so sausages precooked (BBQ ideal)
2 large onions, chopped
3 carrot diced
2 teaspoons curry powder
½ apple peeled and grated
2 to 3 cups water
1 teaspoon beef stock powder
Salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons cornflour mixed with extra water to a smooth paste

Curried sausages in the Dream Pot

Method:

  1. Place vegetables, apple, water, spices, stock powder , tomato pasted and salt and pepper in a large saucepan, and simmer for 30 minutes (add more water as necessary)
  2. Add chopped sausages and simmer for an hour or better still pop it into your Dream Pot or thermal cooker and leave it for 4 hours.
  3. Stir in flour mixture and stir until the mixture thickens. (If cooking in Dream Pot then add flour just before placing in Dream Pot) 
  4. Serve with mashed potatoes combined and boiled vegetables of your choice.

You could replace regular white potatoes with sweet potatoes or at least add some to your white potatoes to make it  healthier as well as being yummy.

Hint: 

I placed my sausages in the top, smaller pot and filled the bottom pot with boiling water. This kept the food "hot"  for longer.  You could use the water for rice and I do when cooking an Asian style curry but for this curry recipe I actually prefer mash potatoes and I haven't had success with potatoes cooked in a thermal pot. I used the hot water for washing up after dinner but a buddy had a better idea: She suggested that I used the bottom pot to make some soup at the same time. It was one of the "Oh Duh - why didn't I think of that" moment. So from now on that is what I will do. Thanks Roma.

  1. Boiled de-skined sausages work well too with a cup of frozen peas added at the end.

    1. They sure do but BBQing the sausages just gives it that extra flavour boost. I'd love the peas but Rob is a little shy of peas! ;)

  2. Thank you for psoting your recipes. I am always on the look out for simple healthy recipes I can use while we are travelling. I even bought a DreamPot because you kept on raving about it. Soups and casseroles are frequently on our menus now, thanks to you. This old fashioned curried sausages is just how I remember my mother making it only she served it with boiled rice. Mashed potatoes with it is much nice in my opinion. Thanks for this suggestion.

    1. Rice would be easier and healthier esp brown rice, but mash potatoes is part of my comfort food! I just love it. I hope you get around to trying some other recipes and let me know how you go. Maybe there's some recipes you could recommend me to try?
