You can’t beat this classic and easy recipe for curried sausages. The perfect meal to eat in the cooler months.
I was challenged by Countdown to come up with an easy winter recipe featuring ingredients from their Great Price range – so I have come up with the Kiwi classic curried sausages. Most of you will know that I love to create affordable family meals and that is why I love the Great Price range at Countdown. Life can get expensive over the winter months and it’s great to know that my pantry essentials are set at low prices.
Curried Sausages can be polarising – you either love them or loathe them! If you grew up in New Zealand in the 80s and 90s there’s a chance you have nostalgic memories of this meal. My husband Mike absolutely loves them so we make this recipe frequently in our house.
Unlike the 90s though, the sauce is made from simple pantry staples and not a sachet or jar! I use a mild curry powder so that our kids will eat it. If you like things hotter, you could add in chilli flakes or hot chilli powder to the sauce. The Countdown Sweet Fruit Chutney adds a great flavour. Any type of meat sausages would work with this meal beef, pork or chicken.
How to make curried sausages:
First, brown the sausages on each side in a large frying pan, then set aside. Add onions and carrots back to the same pan and cook while stirring for a few minutes. Add butter and stir through as it melts, then sprinkle over curry powder and stir.
Slowly pour in the beef stock and stir in the chutney. Slice sausages into 1cm thick pieces and add them back to the pan. Stir to combine then leave to simmer for 5-10 minutes until the sausages are cooked all the way through and the sauce has thickened.
Stir in peas and cook for 2 more minutes until they are heated through. Sprinkle over parsley and serve on top of creamy mashed potatoes or steamed rice.
For more ideas on how to use sausages, be sure to check out my posts for Smokey Sausage Casserole and Slow Cooker Sausage Pasta. Sausages are great by themselves on the BBQ, but these dishes take them to the next level all year round.
Common questions about curried sausages:
Can I use different types of sausages? Absolutely. Pork, chicken or lamb sausages would work really with this meal. I would avoid sausages with lots of flavouring and use traditional varieties.
Does this meal freeze well? It does! Store in an airtight container for up to three months. Remove from the freezer and let it defrost in the fridge overnight. Then reheat in a pan on the stove top.
Thanks so much to Countdown for partnering with me to create this delicious recipe.
