General information

Originally from Berlin, this German fast-food-favorite, Bratwurst with Curry Ketchup, can be found in the snack bars of almost any city. Why not make it your new favorite?

Method

1. For the ketchup, heat the oil in a small saucepan and sauté the onion until translucent. Add the tomatoes and the sugar, vinegar, mustard, allspice, cloves, mace, cinnamon and bay leaf. Simmer uncovered, for 45 minutes, or until a thick paste forms. Remove the bay leaf and puree the sauce. Season with salt and pepper and cool. The sauce can be kept refrigerated for 3 to 4 weeks.

2. For the sausage, heat the oil in a large skillet. Sauté the sausages until cooked through and browned, turning them frequently. Top each sausage with the sauce and sprinkle with a pinch of curry powder. (As an even tastier alternative during a BBQ, grilled sausages can be used.)
