Currywurst Mon, 10/13/08 12:52 PM (permalink)
Anyone ever had a Currywurst here in the States? (or Canada) I know they are extrememly popular in Germany and have been for decades. I've never seen this here in the US.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Currywurst

http://www.saveur.com/food/new-recipes/currywurst-sauce-50979.html

A German friend of mine says he usually gets them as Bratwursts on a bun with the sauce. You can also get them as just the sausage with sauce, and quite a few sausage selections. An afternoon snack, as well as a post-bar munchie fix.

    I had a couple curry wurst in Germany. They came as part of a combo platter. The ones I had were highly seasoned and the oil had a yellowish-curry-powder color, but there was no sauce on any of the sausages(except a hot sempf for dipping)

          Yep. Have had them here in the States at many a German deli and even have a kick-arse recipe developed over time.

          Sliced white brats or metts, tomato based curry sauce and crusty bread.

          The curry aspect comes from the yellow madras curry powder in the sauce. This is great 1:00am drunk food as is a proper donar kebob.

            Sorry.

            To clairfy this, many currywurst recipes use ketchup and there is even a curry ketchup available in the EU.

            I use canned tomato sauce, honey, apple cider vinegar, yellow Madras curry powder, sliced apples, chili flakes, brown sugar, beer, heinz chili sauce and a few other goodies to make my own.

            No ketchup, and recipe is straight from a local now defunt German eatery.

              If you check it out the curry is in the wurst. They do offer several currt sauces but you would use a curry wurst rather than a brat

                While in Germany, after a hard night, we used to stop at a vendor that set up outside of the X-1 disco. He had Currywurst mit Brochen ( a type of bread with a decent crust on it). We would spend what few remaining Marks were in our pockets to get a late night snack. It was truly great.

                      A lovely German woman who lived for many years next door to us introduced us to a curry sauce on bratwurst. Her's was very simple - ketchup and curry powder to whatever fits your taste. We still do this although she moved away a few years ago. 

                      Cheers, John

                        Moin, John!

                        A Bratwurst is never a Currywurst over here in Germany. Even topped with Ketchup and Curry Powder...!!!

                        The Bratwurst is always fresh, fried in the pan, or over charcoal, the trad. german Currywurst is always boiled/brewed in salted water, with or without skin, after cooling down for at least 24 hours, the trad. german Currywurst will be fried in a pan, served with the very special Currywurst-Sauce (Never plain Ketchup!!!...), and topped with curry-powder, and the very special "secrets", from mild to wild...

                        The very best german Currywurst is av. at "Konnopke" in Berlin.

                        CU for a Currywurst over here in Germany!

                        Michael

                            "Looks like there is Ketchup there to me."

                            Nonsense! A typical german Currywurst-Sauce has nothing in common with plain Tomato-Ketchup, the very best Currywurst-Shacks here in Germany hold their recipes "secret", for many good reasons...

                            It is not "Ketchup" ala McDonalds, this is the serious stuff, for the adult people...

                              Well, she never called it "currywurst" - to her it was grilled brats served on a bun with ketchup/curry powder sauce. This thread is the first time i ever heard the term "currywurst".

                                Funny you should mention currywurst, because I just read an article about a currywurst incident on Grub Street (the name of the link should tip you off as to the subject):

                                  Would try it,but doubt you will find one in the deep South.

                                          About german Currywurst, let me share a link to a so called german "Comedian", Atze Schröder, ref. about Currywurst...

                                          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49T51nwQgDQ

                                          It is not my personal kind of "humor" very antisocial, but the dumb bunch over here, they like this , very much.
