Mild and Fruity Sausage Curry

Mild and Fruity Sausage Curry

Two curry recipes in a week! Sorry about that but I couldn't resist posting this little number to celebrate British Sausage Week which runs from 31st October to the 6th November 2016.

Now, you might think sausage and curry are two words that shouldn't be heard in the same sentence together...and I was most certainly in that camp, until recently that is. A friend of mine mentioned she makes a version of sausage curry for her children that according to her, goes down very well (as in everyone eats it without a fuss - can't go wrong then!). I was very sceptical but took a leap of faith, listened to my friend and made it and I'm very glad I did. Who on earth knew sausages would work so well in a curry!! Well, my friend did,  I just wished I had cottoned onto this fab combination sooner.

I can't say the first time I served it went without it's problems though. When presenting the sausage curry to the kids, my 7 year old son who like other 7 year old boys likes talking about all manner of body parts and bodily functions decided to rename it 'willy' curry. As you can probably guess, this resulted in a temporary stand-off with my 9 year old daughter who flatly refused to eat 'willy' curry. Thankfully the situation was resolved without too much pain (I threatened them with an early bed time) and I'm pleased to report all three of my children really enjoyed the curry....once they actually tried it. Whenever I serve it now my son gives me a little smirk and then I give him 'the stare' before any harm is done!

The curry is very mild to suit children's taste buds but if you wanted to make it hotter just add a chopped red chilli along with the onion and garlic in Step 1 of the instructions. You could also add in a handful of sultana's too, but my eldest doesn't like them so that was a no no here.

If you like the look of this sausage recipe pop over and have a look at my Slow Cooker Sausage and Mushroom Casserole. Another yummy Autumn warmer.


  1. This is lovely. I don't think I've had a Thai or Indian curry with sausage, but why not?!! They're my favorite meat!!

  2. That looks delicous and perfect for Bonfire night.

  3. I love the combination of meat and fruit! A fabulous recipe! Followed you on FB, Instagram and Pinterest:)

  4. Looks totally warming and delicious. I'll use veggie sausages. It would be good value too. I generally avoid coconut milk but in this case I will make an exception! Thanks :)

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
