Our kids just love this kid-friendly curried sausages recipe. It’s just really warming and hearty and satisfying; especially during the colder months. 

This really is delicious, and it makes lots – it will store safely in the fridge for 2 or 3 days and can be easily reheated. It also freezes really well, and can be thawed and reheated, either in the microwave or on the stovetop.

It’s really kid-friendly with the mild curry powder. And the tomatoes and super-secret home-made tomato sauce in the recipe give this a really nice sweetness. The fruit also provides sweetness and freshness, without it becoming too sweet for the grownups.

You’ll quickly find this easy-to-make meal becomes a family favourite.

Kid Friendly Curried Sausages

This is delicious and makes lots – it will store safely in the fridge for two or three days and can be easily reheated in the microwave.


  • 25 g butter
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp Vencat mild curry powder
  • 10 – 12 gluten free sausages Hellers are very nice
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 medium to large kumara peeled and chopped into 2-3cm cubes
  • 1 400 g can Italian-style tomatoes
  • 1 cup home-made tomato sauce
  • 1 400 g can coconut cream
  • 1 handful each of frozen peas and corn
  • 2 apples peeled, cored and chopped into 2cm cubes
  • 2 tbsp sultanas
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large electric frying pan, place the butter, with the spices on top of it.
  2. Heat so that the spices mix in as the butter melts. Cook for a minute or so to develop the spice flavours.
  3. Add the sausages and roll the around in the butter and spice mix.
  4. Add the onions and kumara and stir through to coat with the spice mix. Cook for a few minutes, stirring regularly, until the sausages brown a little.
  5. Add the tin of tomatoes and the tomato sauce and mix well. Stir through the coconut cream.

  6. Add in the frozen peas and corn, and add the cubed apple and the sultanas, mix well.

  7. Cover and cook on low to medium heat for about an hour. Try to maintain a gentle simmer throughout.
  8. If needed, thicken with a very small amount of cornflour in water. Usually the mix thickens itself adequately during the cooking process.

Vencat curry powder!! I would love to get some of that (or a recipe of the ingredients). I don’t think this has been retailed for many years


Hi BJ, yes I think you’re right. It seems people haven’t seen it in stores since around 2016. We’ll have to update the recipe. Might get in touch with someone like Spice Traders and see what they recommend as a good substitute: https://www.thespicetrader.co.nz/ Send a comment through if you locate any sources. — Jarrod
