Currywurst is a german food truck dish that consists of a grilled pork sausage served with fries and topped with ketchup and curry powder. This stuff is crack. When i was in Germany, i ate it like it was going out of style. Many think that bratwurst is used, but that is incorrect. Honestly, it is more like knockwurst than anything else...which means I do not know what kind of wurst they use in a currywurst stand. (If you know, please tell me!)
The best Schnell-Imbisse (fast-food stands) make their own currywurst sauce, essentially a curry powder–flavored ketchup. Here's a recipe i found on Saveur.com.
- Heat 2 tbsp. canola oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
- Add 1 finely chopped large yellow onion; cook until soft, 8–10 minutes.
- Add 2 tbsp. curry powder and 1 tbsp. hot paprika; cook for 1 minute more.
- Using hands, crush 2 cups whole peeled canned tomatoes (with juice) into pan.
- Add 1⁄2 cup sugar, 1⁄4 cup red wine vinegar, and salt to taste; stir well.
- Increase heat to high; bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 25 minutes.
- Purée sauce in a blender until smooth.
- Strain sauce through a sieve. Serve hot over sausage.
- Makes about 1 1⁄2 cups.
