Curried sausages are classic comfort food that’s simple to make, tasty and inexpensive – perfect for feeding the family.
Curry powder can vary in spice level so you may want to adjust according to your tastes. I use the full amount and still find it fairly mild.
As per usual, I’ve added some extra veggies to make this meal a little more nutritious. Shanghai bok choy is not exactly a traditional component of curried sausages, but I like the fact that it’s really mild and soaks up the flavour of the sauce nicely. You can leave it out if you prefer!

Curried sausages are a classic, warming family meal. You can adjust the amount of curry powder to suit your tastes.
Peel kumara, chop into large cubes and place in a medium-large saucepan. Cover with water.
MAKE CURRIED SAUSAGES
Use kitchen scissors to chop each sausage into 5 pieces. Heat olive oil in large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Cook sausages until browned all over (about 5 minutes, they don’t need to be fully cooked through). Remove onto a plate.
While sausages are cooking, slice shanghai bok choy and onion and crush garlic. Add to the pan after you have removed the sausages and cook for 3 minutes, until softened.
Meanwhile, bring the kumara to a boil and boil for 20 minutes.
Add sausages back to the pan with remaining ingredients. You can start with 1 Tbsp curry powder and add more at the end, depending on your tastes. Simmer for 15 minutes, until sauce has thickened and sausages are cooked through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
While sausages are simmering, chop broccoli into florets and microwave for 3 minutes.
Drain kumara well, then add butter and sour cream. Mash until smooth, then season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve sausages on mash with broccoli on the side.
WINE MATCH: Try a Gewurtztraminer.
GLUTEN-FREE OPTION: Make sure sausages, chicken stock, tomato sauce, cornflour and Worcestershire sauce are gluten-free.
BUDGET TIP: Use potato instead of kumara.
MAKE IT MORE NUTRITIOUS: Replace half the kumara (or potato) with cauliflower.
STORING AND REHEATING: Refrigerate individual portions in airtight containers and reheat in the microwave as required.
