Currywurst Recipe – The Schnell Imbiss Way

This currywurst recipe comes direct from a real German!

A german currywurst recipe

I have no doubt that some of you are going to wonder what this recipe is doing on my site. Currywurst doesn’t exist in India and for that matter it’s not all that popular here in the UK. You would not believe how many requests I have had for a good currywurst recipe!

So here it is. My kids love it. We use German bratwurst just like they do in Germany where currywurst is a much loved and popular treat.

I met my wife while we were both studying in Germany and currywurst was not only cheap but on every street corner and schnell imbiss. I never thought that twenty years later I would be doing a homemade version but this food sure does bring back some great memories.

You could simply purchase some hotdogs, heat them up and pour the sauce over them. That’s often what you get in Germany. Bratwurst is a lot nicer though. If you aren’t all that bothered about achieving that authentic German flavour, use some good quality sausages and serve the sauce on the side just as you would ketchup.


This currywurst recipe is so easy to make and kids love it!
