Before jumping to the recipe please note that the below information contains HOT TIPS for this recipe. We try and answer all your questions to guarantee a perfect keto recipe every time.

If I had a dollar for all the times, I have been asked for a recipe for keto curried sausages… 🤣 I didn’t really get it, but hey when I finally got around to creating one I really enjoyed it, and the recipe.

To me curried sausages is a very old-fashioned recipe. I remember my mum making it for the family when I was very little. I had no idea it was that popular nowadays.

Anyway, let’s have a look at what I have created. Trust me I have dialled up the old-school version. A keto curried sausage recipe has no cornflour obviously, but I have managed to create a perfect keto curry gravy. It is thick silky and so delicious!

What you need to make Keto Curried Sausages

These curried sausages are super easy to make. All the ingredients are easily found in your local supermarket.

I have given you an option for thickeners. Choose between xanthan gum and gelatin, either way you go both are now available in the supermarket.

Pictures is Keens Curry Powder but if you love Baba’s Meat Curry and/or have a good spice drawer at home try my Malaysian Meat Curry Powder recipe. As good if not better than Baba’s and soooooo easy to make!

Here is all you need to make it.

How to make Keto Curried Sausages

For convenience I have included both a conventional method and how to make keto curried sausages with a Thermomix. Either way you do it the recipe is fantastic. The method included with the Thermomix doesn’t involve any extra steps but still results in a very creamy and delicious curry sauce.

Sauté the onion, in the butter with curry powder, lemongrass paste, ginger and onion. Once the onion is soft remove from the pan.

Fry the sausages until almost cooked through. By not frying until they are done this will keep the moist and succulent. They will continue to cook in the gravy once added back to the pan (or Thermomix). Sausages can be steamed in the Thermomix, if preferred.

Add 1 cup of the stock and xanthan gum (or gelatin) to the pan and cook until thick. Add remaining stock, tomatoes and coconut cream. Return the onions and sausages to the pan and cook until thick.

Serve with Creamy Cauliflower Mash fresh parsley or coriander leaves.

FAQs and Hot Tips

Can I freeze it? Absolutely! Spoon into individual portions and freeze in an airtight container for a freezer-friendly keto meal.

Can I make keto vegan curried sausages? Sure can! Simply substitute vegan sausages, seitan or nutmeat for the sausages. Use a vegetable broth and xanthan gum for the thickener.

To cook curried sausages in the Instant Pot just add all the ingredients to the pot and give a good stir Seal the lid and cook on Pressure/5 minutes/natural release. Stir to evenly distribute the xanthan gum and thin with extra stock or water, if needed.

Add any vegetables you prefer to the curry. Zucchini or yellow squash would be a delicious choice for this very tasty low carb sausage dinner.

  • 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic finely minced

  • 2 cups beef broth/stock click for recipe
  • ½ teaspoon xanthan gum or 1 tbsp beef gelatin
  • 1/4 cup crushed tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste




  • Heat butter in a large frying over medium heat. Add garlic, ginger, lemongrass paste, curry powder, and onion and sauté until onion is translucent. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • In the same pan cook sausages until golden and cooked through. Remove the sausages from the pan and cut into smaller pieces or slices, as preferred and add to onion mixture.
  • Add 1 cup of the bone broth and xanthan gum (or gelatin) and cook whisking until the gravy thickens.
  • Add remaining bone broth tomatoes and coconut cream cook stirring until gravy thickens. Add sausages/onion mixture and cook a further 1-2 minutes until heated through.
  • Season to taste. Serve sausages with cauliflower mash and garnish with fresh herbs.


  • Add the butter to the mixer bowl and heat 90 sec/100°C/stir. Add garlic, ginger, lemongrass paste, curry powder and onion to the mixer bowl and chop 3 sec/speed 5. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and cook 5 min/100°C/stir/MC off. Leave in the bowl to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Heat a large frying pan over moderate heat Add the sausages and the sausage and cook until golden and cooked through. Remove the sausages from the pan and cut into smaller pieces or slices, as preferred.
  • Add 1 cup of bone broth and xanthan gum (or gelatin) into the mixer bowl and cook 4 min/100°C/speed 3.

  1. Any vegetables of choice can be added to the curry.
  2. For a delicious keto vegan option simply replace the sausages for vegan sausages and swap the broth for a vegetable broth.
  3. Always use xanthan gum sparingly as it can leave a slimy mouth feel. If the gravy is slimy simply add more broth to thin it out.
  4. Beef, pork or lamb sausaged can be used.
  5. Store in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze in individual portions.

    Wow what a taste sensation. I haven’t had curried sausages in years so this was a winning dish for me and my family. I used xanthum gum as my thickener and cooked conventional method. I cooked the sausages first as I had my 2 year old grandson with me and he happily ate a plain sausage with cauliflower mash. My daughter in law loved it too. She took the rest home for lunch and it got a huge thumbs up from her. I will be making this on a regular basis. It’s a truly great recipe.

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Yay! Thanks for letting us know it was a winner Lynda. And a big thank you for letting us know how it went with the family. Always love to hear when you have a win in the kitchen xx.

    These are very delicious sausages. Spicy, but not too hot so all members of the family enjoyed them. Tried to thicken with the gelatin, but it didn’t work, so used the xanthan gum and it was great. Thanks

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      So glad you enjoyed them Vicki. The gelatin does take a bit longer to thicken but xanthan gum works incredibly good with this recipe.

    Wow this was so easy and super delicious. I doubled the recipe as I wanted to make it for lunches or dinners this week while I’m working. Cooked sausages in frypan, made sauce in the thermomix and then added sauce to frypan and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Will definitely be making again that’s for sure. Hubby loved it too!!
