  • Bratwurst
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp yellow curry powder
  • 2 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper


  1. Cut slits on both sides of the brats to prevent them from bursting while cooking.

  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry brats for 8-10 minutes, turning several times while they cook, or until browned. Transfer to a plate.

  3. In the same skillet, cook the onions until soft and translucent, about 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic and curry powder. Cook for another minute or until fragrant.

  4. Add the ketchup and baking soda, simmer until the foaming subsides. Reduce the heat to low. Add the remaining sauce ingredients. Bring to a simmer for 5-10 minutes.

  5. Remove from heat. Use an immersion blender and blend until smooth

  6. Pour the sauce over the brats and dust with curry powder. Serve with French fries or crispy bread.
