1/3 Photos of German Curry Sauce for Wurst
If you've ever been to Germany, then you will be familiar with the ever present "Schnell Imbiss" stands. Similar to a hot dog stand, the Schnell Imbiss stand sells a variety of wurst dishes including the famous "Currywurst," a grilled bratwurst, cut into slices, and served with a ladleful of warm curry sauce. Curry sauce is also served over "pommes" (aka French Fries). This is the recipe, as told to me by a German Imbiss lady herself. It is really quite simple to make and keeps well in the fridge. The Imbiss stands always use mild curry powder to make this sauce. It tastes much better than the commerically prepared versions.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Heat ketchup in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until warm, stirring often.
- 2Meanwhile, add lots of curry powder- about a teaspoon at a time (I use about 3-4 tsp. total), stirring each time, until it no longer tastes like ketchup, but has a tangy curry taste, stirring constantly.
- 3Don't go too overboard with the curry; you just want it to lose the sweet ketchupy taste.
- 4Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the ketchup thickens a bit and takes on a grainy look- this only takes a few minutes.
- 5Serve immediately with cooked bratwurst or let cool and store in a plastic squeeze bottle in the fridge and use as a condiment for any cooked wurst.
- 6Serve warm or cold.
