This is the first Thermomix recipe I ever “developed”. Shortly after moving in with my now husband, Michael, I asked him what he was craving for dinner and he replied “curried sausages”. Now, I had never heard of curried sausages in my life… so I jumped on Google and browsed about 100 recipes, with this concept in my head that it would be creamy and coconutty… only to find it was more of a tomatoey dish with supermarket curry powder in it. PASS!!!! This recipe is really delicious, but more of a comfort meal in the Skinnymixer household. My husband requests it any time I ask him what he wants for dinner, so I have stopped asking. I converted it to Thermomix a few years ago and whenever someone asks for a curried sausages recipe, I find the original version raved about. Usually we do it with frozen peas, but I didn’t have any on hand so chucked in some baby spinach – which we actually now prefer. Find out more about my healthy Thermomix recipes.

The quality of the sausages have a big impact on this dish, you can substitute chicken breast or chicken thigh utilising the same cooking instructions. It is also popular with chicken sausages or sausages cooked on the BBQ instead of steamed.
The sauce is a runny sauce which is soaked up by the rice for extra flavour.
You can find the curry powder at Asian and Indian grocers or online here: http://bit.ly/1PXPEsY. Skinnymixers recieve 10% off using the discount code SKMIX in the shopping cart and if you stock up on other things you need its only a $12 flatrate shipping fee x (not sponsored)
If you don't have Babas, please be mindful of how strong your curry powder is if you need the dish mild. Babas is quite mild so if using Keens you may not want 1-2 Tbsp. Check out http://skinnymixers.com.au/ingredients/
Use the blunt blade for this recipe.
At step 4 you may need to increase the onion cooking time.
At step 6 if using an Intelli place a tea towel over the steamer lid, use speed 3 and increase cooking time if required. If using a Supercook please use speed 4.
At step 9 DO NOT use your butterfly and be sure to use speed 1.
