A twist on an Aussie classic, these slimming friendly Curried Sausages are perfect when watching your calories or following a plan like Weight Watchers!

These Curried Sausages came about after having a hankering for a chippy dinner one night. Sadly, a visit to the chippy and trying to lose weight don’t work well together, so we thought we’d make Curried Sausages instead!

This dish is ready in under an hour so it’s a really quick and easy dinner, but you could also make it in the slow cooker if you’d prefer. You can find our Slow Cooker Curried Sausages recipe here.

Curried Sausages are as common as spag bol in Australia, and after chatting to an Aussie friend we decided to give it a slimming twist.

In our version of Curried Sausages, we’ve crammed as much veg as we can into it. Even the sauce is made of vegetables, which means it’s a great way to make sure you’re getting your 5 a day and is ideal for picky eaters.

If you’re a fan of curry and sausages, why not try our Currywurst recipe next which is a German take on the same flavours?

Do you use Mild Madras powder or hot madras powder (until now I didn’t know there were 2 different strengths!)

    HollyMonday 15th March 2021

    Hey Brig, it’s up to you which strength of the madras curry powder you use as you can suit it to your taste, hope that helps!

Is it best to brown the sausages before putting in the curry?

Reply

    KatieMonday 16th November 2020

    Did you get a reply about browning the sausages beforehand?
    Can anyone who’s made this recipe answer? Do you need to brown the sausages before putting in the curry sauce?

    Reply

      HollyThursday 19th November 2020

      Hi Katie, you could lightly brown the sausages in a frying pan before adding them to the curry in step 6 but as they are sliced up they will cook once added to the pan as they are. Hope that helps!
