This is my personal version of currywurst. It's guaranteed to match perfectly with your beer.

Ingredients: 4 servings (2 servings)

Wiener sausages
as much as you like
Onion (small)
Half (1/4)
Olive oil
2 tablespoons (1 tablespoon)
◆Tomato purée
1 tablespoon (1/2 tablespoon)
250 g (125 g)
◆Balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons (1/2 tablespoon)
2 tablespoons (1 tablespoon)
◆Soy sauce
1 teaspoon (1/2 teaspoon)
◎Curry powder
2 tablespoons (1 tablespoon)
◎Chili powder
1 teaspoon (1/2 teaspoon)
Coriander, turmeric
a small amount


1. Finely mince the onions (or grate), and combine the ◆ ingredients.
2. Dry fry the ◎ spices in a frying pan until fragrant. Transfer a teaspoon worth in a separate bowl for the end.
3. Sweat the onions with olive oil, then add the spices from Step 2.
4. Lower the heat, add the ◆ ingredients and stir to prevent scorching. Stop the heat once it bubbles and let rest for an hour.

6. If you make a large batch of the sauce, it will keep in the fridge for up to a week.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to make currywurst at home, so I consulted various German recipes sites and cookbooks, and tried out various food stands.

I was surprised that many recipes call for soy sauce!
