A tasty retro sausage curry, perfect for a quick and easy midweek meal.
As an 80’s child, sausage curry featured on the menu quite often in our house. I thought it was about time for a revival of this classic dish!
You might think sausage and curry don’t really go hand in hand…but you’re so wrong!
This is one of the easiest, tastiest, kid friendly curries going! I hope you like it as much as we do.
✔️ Why should you try it?
- Mild and creamy
- Suitable for freezing
- Quick and easy to make
- Sausages – I used chipolata sausages but you could also use thick pork sausages. The sausages need to be cooked before adding them to the curry sauce. You can either fry them in a frying pan on the hob, or oven bake for 10 minutes in a hot oven.
- Onion – peeled and finely chopped.
- Garlic – 2 cloves, peeled and finely chopped.
- Ginger – a thumb size piece of ginger, peeled and finely chopped or grated.
- Olive Oil – for frying the onion.
- Flour – plain flour helps thicken the curry gravy.
- Curry Powder – I use mild curry powder but if you like things spicier use a hot curry powder.
- Chicken Stock – forms the base of the sauce.
- Double Cream – helps thicken the sauce and gives it a lovely creamy flavour. You could also use crème fraiche if you prefer.
- Peas – frozen peas added for the last few minutes of cooking adds a bit of colour to the dish.
- Mango Chutney – adds a fruity kick to the curry.

💭 Top tips
- Cook the sausages the night before and keep them in the fridge until needed.
🍴 Serving suggestions
These curried sausages are delicious served with homemade pilau rice and naan breads.
As this isn’t an authentically Indian curry, leftovers are also really tasty with mashed potato!
- Up the veggies by adding baby spinach to the sauce a few minutes before serving. The heat will quickly wilt the spinach.
- Make it spicy by adding 1 chopped red chilli at the same time as the garlic and ginger.
- Use a hot curry powder if you prefer.
The curry can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat thoroughly in the microwave until piping hot.
The curry can also be frozen for up to 3 months in a freezer safe container. Defrost in the fridge before reheating in the microwave.
Flour, cornflour or thickening granules can all be used to thicken the sausage curry sauce.
Good quality meaty pork sausages should be used. Chipolatas are great for kids, but you can also use thick sausages if you prefer.
