    HeatherFeather's Note:

    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



    cup sauce

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Heat ketchup in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until warm, stirring often.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, 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.
    3. 3
      Don't go too overboard with the curry; you just want it to lose the sweet ketchupy taste.
    4. 4
      Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the ketchup thickens a bit and takes on a grainy look- this only takes a few minutes.
    5. 5
      Serve 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.
    6. 6
      Serve warm or cold.

      Thanks for a fond memory of Ramstein and other environs in Germany, I missed this taste for 10 years.

      Ok, I'm German, of course I lived in Germany, and this sauce is spot on. If it is not like you remembered it years ago, then your memory has faded rather than it being the recipe's fault. Either that or you just didn't have good curry sauce. Preparation is key and is a lot more than tossing some curry powder into cold ketschup and expecting curry sauce. Follow this recipe and you can not go wrong! This sauce is so versatile I use it on everything, eggs, fish, steak, cereal. Just kidding about the cereal but it is so good on anything you could think of. Good job HeatherFeather! =D

      I was going to skip this and just serve my beer brats with hot mustard and horseradish. It's SO easy that I decided, why not? It was a very good choice on my part! This was an excellent sauce and went perfectly with my meal.
