Curried Sausages is 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!

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