What are Curried Sausages?

These really are the best-ever curried sausages! Traditionally made with beef sausages, gravy, onions, and peas, this one-pot recipe has a little Mad Creations twist.

Australians refer to this classic curry meal as bangers and mash or curried snags. We are big on nicknaming everything! 😂 It has been a family favourite meal for decades.

An Australian curried sausage recipe is not usually a hot curry like you might find in an Indian sausage curry. You can make it spicier if you like, though.

Curried sausages are best served over mashed potatoes or Cauliflower Mash (for an amazing low carb option). I have served mine with Lemon Gremolata. The gremolata herb sauce is a perfect match for the rich curry sauce.

The Ingredients

Scroll to the bottom of this post for the quantity of each ingredient used in our best curry sausages recipe.

Labelled ingredients for curried sausages.

Curry powder – I use Malaysian Meat Curry Powder which is similar to Babas Meat Curry Powder. You can use any curry powder you prefer. Keens Curry is most commonly used, however, it does contain rice powder. You can also use a curry paste in this sausage curry too.

Sausages – choose the sausages you love the most. Beef sausages, pork sausages, chicken or vegetarian sausages. The choice is yours. I choose a low-carb gluten-free sausage to use with this curry recipe. I recommend a good-quality beef sausage that has lot of nice healthy fats. A leaner sausage will be tough and drier when cooked in the curry.

I choose low-carb sausages that are not too lean. My local butcher can make some with my own spice mix and no additives. The sausages used can be precooked sausages if you prefer, or even leftover BBQ sausages. Some recipes might have call for par-boiling the sausage. I don’t recommend boiling as you are removing the flavour.

Gelatin – I use powdered gelatin to thicken the curry gravy. Cornstarch, flour, or xanthan gum can be used as a substitute.

How To Make Curried Sausages

For your convenience, I have included stovetop and how to make Thermomix curried sausages.

Step 1. Pan fry the sausages over medium heat until browned all over. 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.

Step 2. Sauté the garlic, ginger, onion and curry powder. Once the onion is soft add half a cup of beef stock and the gelatin (or thickener you are using). Simmer until it begins to thicken.

Step 3. Add the tomatoes and cream and simmer until it begins to thicken

Step 4. Add the sausages and any extra stock you want. Simmer until thick and saucy. Serve.

How To Make Thermomix Curried Sausages

Step 1. Cook sausages in a large skillet until golden and cooked through. Remove the sausages from the pan and slice them into smaller pieces. Set aside.

Step 2. Add butter to mixer; melt 90 sec/100°C/stir. Add garlic, ginger, curry powder, and onion; chop 3 sec/speed 5. Scrape down sides of bowl; cook 5 min/100°C/stir/MC off. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.

Step 3. Add half a cup of bone broth and the gelatin; cook 4 min/100°C/speed 3.

Step 4. Add another half cup of broth, tomatoes, and cream (if using). Cook 4 min/100°C/speed 3. Add remaining broth if you want it saucier. Add sausages; cook 4 min/100°C/reverse/stir. Season to taste. Serve sausages with cauliflower mash and garnish with fresh herbs.

HOT TIP: The more stick you use in the Thermomix the less likely the sauce will thicken. You can however add an extra tablespoon of gelatin with the remaining stock. Extend the cooking time if needed to help thicken the sauce.

Variations

Talking Italian – use Italian sausages, leave out the cream and use a tablespoon of tomato paste in the sauce. Serve with parmigiano and Pesto Alla Genovese. A good Italian Chianti will help to help cut through the richness of the tomato sauce.

Sausage Casserole – After browning the sausages add all the ingredients to a Dutch oven and slow bake in the oven until thick. Top with piles of mashed potato or mashed cauliflower and sprinkle with parmesan. Bake until a crust forms on the mash.

Add more vegetables – my curried snags do not really have any veggies. Add more like diced celery, carrots, capsicum and/or a cup of frozen peas.

FAQs and Hot Tips

Can I freeze curried sausages?

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

How to make curried sausages in the slow cooker?

Yes, you can. Brown the sausages and slice them first. Add all the ingredients to the slow cooker and cook on low for 4-6 hours or high 2-3 hours. Turn the heat up to thicken as needed.

Can I make curried sausages in my Instant Pot?

To cook curried sausages in the Instant Pot; just add all ingredients to the pot (fry and slice sausages first) and stir well. Seal the lid and cook on Pressure/5 minutes/natural release. Stir and simmer to thicken the sauce if needed.

Notes

INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTES
This is really a simple and easy curried sausage recipe. Any vegetable(s) of choice can be added. Add more tomato sauce, gravy, or cream to make it how you like it best.
Find low carb sausages at the supermarket or ask your butcher to make them. I use Three Aussie Farmers sausages from Coles supermarkets. They have a range of sausages that are between 1-2 g net carbs per sausage.
Curry Powder – I have used my Malaysian Meat Curry Powder but make a traditional Keens Curry with Aussie classic Keens Curry Powder or us any curry paste you like. We have a great Massaman or Red Curry Paste that would go great with this curry sausage recipe.
Gelatin can be replaced with 1/4- 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum. Always use xanthan gum sparingly as it can leave a slimy mouth feel. Glucomannan powder, arrowroot flour, or corn flour can be used in its place.
VARIATIONS
Talking Italian – use Italian sausages, leave out the cream and use a tablespoon of tomato paste in the sauce. Serve with parmigiano and Pesto Alla Genovese. A good Italian Chianti will help to help cut through the richness of the tomato sauce.
Sausage Casserole – After browning the sausages add all the ingredients to a Dutch oven and slow bake in the oven until thick. Top with piles of mashed potato or mashed cauliflower and sprinkled with parmesan. Bake until a crust forms on the mash.
Slow cooker curried sausages – to make curried sausages in the slow cooker, sauté the garlic, ginger, onions, and curried powder first until softened. Then pile everything into the slow cooker (no need to fry or boil the sausages, unless you want to). Cook on low for 7-8 hours.
Add more vegetables – my curried snags do not really have any veggies. Add more like diced celery, carrots, capsicum and/or a cup of frozen peas.
For a delicious keto vegan curried sausages option simply replace the sausages for vegan sausages and swap the broth for a vegetable broth.
STORING 
Fridge – store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Freezer – freeze in an airtight container.
Reheating – defrost overnight. Reheat on the stove over gentle heat. Add more broth or cream as needed. When reheating in the microwave stop intermittently to stir the curry and reheat evenly.
For more curried sausages recipes try our Sausages Rougail or Devilled Sausages.
