In 2012 I was lucky enough to go on the Leonardo da Vinci programme a work exchange in Europe. It gave me the chance to learn some German and go to Berlin for a few months to work.

It was an amazing experience letting me live in another country and learning about other cultures and food.

So what food do I find myself missing? Firstly Currywurst. So what is Currywurts?

It is a German street food served mostly from kiosks and open from the morning to the early hours. It is cheap it is tasty and it a Berlin original!

So get to the point what is it? It is a Bratwurst a German sausage covered in a curry ketchup.

I know  it does not sound like much but you have to  taste it.



So the sauce.

  • 1/4 cup ( I was told by the lady in the kiosk it should be Heinz to be  authentic)
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp mild curry powder
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp water

Take you ingredients and combine them in a small pan you want to just cook it lightly until it starts to bubble then turn off the heat and give it a good stir.

Now cook your Bratwurst  you can either fry it or grill it. I prefer grill them. Once they have cooked for about 8-10 minutes.

Slice your Bratwurst then dust with curry powder and drizzle over the sauce.


You can enjoy this as a snack by itself you can also serve it with fries .

It is funny how it is the small things that you end up missing.  But for me this dish is a very real part of my European experience and every time I eat it I will be taken back to the city where I met my wife.

  1. Yum! I’d eat that. I like how it’s cut up for easy eating. Do they ever serve currywurst in bread like a German hot dog?

  2. They sometimes serve it with bread (mit Brötchen) but that normally comes separately. I have made it like a hot dog in the past and it is really good so worth a try.
