Spicy Sausage and Potato Curry


 It's grilling season around here so sausages are constantly going on sale.  I can't resist a sale so I bought a package of brats sausages and then didn't know what I was going to do with them.  I could have just grilled them, but I decided to spice them up a different way and that's how this sausage and potato curry came about. 

You will need 1 package (about 1lb) of any style sausage you like to use for this curry. 

You will also need:
1 large onion chopped
4 potatoes peeled and cubed
2 serrano chiles sliced
20-25 curry leaves
1 small piece of cinnamon stick
3-4 cloves of garlic grated
1 inch of grated ginger
1 cup of diced tomatoes (fresh or canned)
1 tsp of  vinegar
1 cup of water
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp of chili powder (or to taste)
1/2 tsp of turmeric
4-5 green cardamom pods
3-4 cloves
1 Tbs of curry powder ( I used American Curry powder by McCormick)

 In a large pan add 1 Tbs of canola oil on med-high heat.  Once heated first add the curry leaves, cinnamon stick, cardamoms, cloves and fry for 30 seconds.  Then add the onions, potatoes, sausage, chilies and fry for another minute.  Now add your grated ginger and garlic and fry for another 1-2 minutes.  Finally add salt, pepper and your dry spices.  Stir well and fry for 2-3 minutes.

Then add your crushed tomatoes, vinegar and 1 cup of water.  Allow everything to simmer for 15-20 minutes or until your potatoes are fork tender and the sausage is cooked through.

Add 1 cup or half a can of coconut milk and simmer for another 2-3 minutes. Taste for salt here.

Serves 4-6.   This dish goes well with any rice and curry meal or with flat breads like roti, naan, chapathi.  Enjoy.

  1. Looks delish! The oil of your ingredients is my favorite!

  2. Love this - sausage and curry - what better?

  3. What an awesome, hearty meal... love it!

  4. I have an unopened jar of curry powder just screaming to be used...I never really knew what to do with it. The docs want me incorporating it into meals because it decreases inflammation. This hearty meal looks incredible. I will be making a batch this week.

  5. Made this last week and the kids LOVED it!! Making it again tonight :) Thanks

  6. I Cooked this today with pork sausages, my two fuzzy kids, hubby and I loved it. I added carrots and one left-over Pink Lady apple with it and had it with rice. Delicious!

    1. So glad you and your family enjoyed it. Love your additions to the recipe. :)

  7. Hi! Just wondering if you throw in the cardamon whole?

    1. Hi, yes. The cardamom pods are used whole. They are just used for flavoring... do not eat them because they are very strong.

  8. I prepared it, it was good, I added bellpeppers in it, and it was good

  9. Made this last night for tomorrow night's dinner. Tastes fantastic at the moment and hopefully the flavours will develop beautifully overnight. Added cauliflower and green beans to increase the veg content. However, probably used the wrong type of sausage but it pretty much disintegrated during the cooking process. Should I have cooked it before everything else? Recipe didn't say...
