Hi, Ray here again.
I was looking through the recipes on the Curry Focus website and saw that there was one for Curried Sausages.
I love sausages and so decided to try out the very simple recipe.
I boiled up the sausages, let them cool and then removed the skins. This was about the most complicated part of the recipe.
I prepared the beef stock and the onions and apple and then started the cooking.
The recipe is pretty easy to follow and there were no surprises or problems.
I served up the curried sausages on rice to the waiting diners.
And the final verdict? Pretty bland. There was not much spice heat to the meal. Everything was cooked OK but it was just bland. In fact, it even looked bland and maybe some colour would have helped.
And the portions were pretty big. There were 3 sausages each and that is a lot. I think the curry would easily have served 6 people, rather than 4.
So, overall, the meal received an average rating of 5.5 out of 10 with a spice/heat rating of very mild.
I must admit that this was a disappointing meal, especially as I like sausages so much.
If you do try the recipe, then maybe you should spice it up a bit with a couple of teaspoons of garam masala and a teaspoon of cumin – the spices could be stir-fried in the butter for a minute before adding the onions, apple and curry powder. And maybe some grated fresh ginger root. And it wouldn’t do any harm to throw in a bell pepper (red or green) and garnish with coriander to give a bit of colour.
