1 brown onion
2 tbsp white wine vinegar
4 cumberland sausages
1/2 tbsp curry powder
1 baby white cabbage
1 tin of tomato frito
2 sub or hot dog rolls
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6. Cut the potatoes (skins on) into chips, then add to a baking tray with a drizzle of vegetable oil and a pinch of salt. Slide the chips to one side of the baking tray and add the Cumberland sausages. Bake for 25-30 min or until the sausages are cooked through and the chips are golden and crisp
Step 2: Meanwhile, boil a kettle. Grate the carrot (skin on). Finely shred (or grate!) the baby white cabbage
Step 3: Dissolve 1 tsp sugar in 2 tsp boiled water in a large bowl. Once dissolved, add the white wine vinegar and a generous pinch of salt – this is your pickling liquor.
Step 4: Add the shredded cabbage and grated carrot to the pickling liquor and set aside until serving – this is your speedy sauerkraut
Step 5: Meanwhile, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat. Once hot, add the curry powder and cook for 30 sec or until fragrant. Once fragrant, add the tomato frito and cook for 3-4 min or until thickened to the consistency of ketchup – this is your curry ketchup.
Step 6: Meanwhile, peel and finely slice the brown onion[s]. Once the curry ketchup is done, transfer it to a bowl and wipe the pan clean. Return the pan to a medium-low heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil. Once hot, add the sliced onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 10-12 min or until soft and caramelised
Step 7: Once the sausages and chips are almost cooked, add the sub rolls to a separate baking tray.
Put the tray in the oven for 2-3 min or until warmed through. Carefully cut the warmed brioche sub rolls down the middle. Load each with two sausages, a dollop of the curry ketchup and caramelised onions.
Serve the currywurst-dog with the chips and speedy sauerkraut to the side. Enjoy!
