Coconut Curried Sausage Thermomix Rice

 Thermomix Coconut Curried Sausages
My Coconut Curried Sausages Adapted For Thermomix

Coconut Curried Sausages is the first Thermomix recipe I ever “developed”. Shortly after moving in with 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 Thermomix recipe is really delicious, but more of a comfort meal in the Skinnymixer household. 

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.

The Coconut Curried Sausages recipe has been a firm favourite in the Skinnymixers Facebook Group & Thermomix Community for a number of years and features in The Top 12 Thermomix Recipes to Freeze List which is full of some of my other healthy Thermomix recipes.

Thermomix Method

  • Weigh rice into the simmering basket and rinse well.
  • Put the onion into the mixer bowl, chop for 2 sec/speed 6/MC on. Scrape bowl down.
  • Add butter and cook for 5 min/100°C or 212°F/speed 1/MC off
  • Add curry powder and cook for 1 min/100°C or 212°F/speed 1/MC off
  • Add water, stock concentrate and tomato paste to bowl. Put simmering basket with rice in place. Put the steaming tray in place. Cook for 20 min/steaming temperature/speed 4.
    Periodically stir rice up with spatula while cooking.
  • Remove sausages. Remove rice to a thermo server to keep warm. ** do not drain liquid, keep it in bowl**
  • At this point you can choose to peel the sausages and then slice them as preferred.
  • Insert butterfly, add sausages coconut cream and peas to bowl. Cook for 8 min/100°C or 212°F/reverse/slowest speed.

Tray Bake Method

  • Preheat fan forced oven to 180°C
  • For the tray bake method we halve the rice to 150 g & use coconut milk.
  • Add sliced onion (fry onion if you prefer), tomato paste, curry powder and coconut milk to large deep ovenproof pan mix to combine. Once combined add in the stock concentrate and water and stir through.
  •  Add in pre-rinsed rice to the sauce in the pan. Then evenly place sausages in the pan.
  • Transfer the pan to the oven on the top rack and cook for 30-40 mins.
  • Add in peas into the pan in the last five minutes of the cook time.


You can omit the rice for grain free, and add extra veg to the steaming trays if you desire... just use only 500 g or 17.6 oz water.
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 at Grandma's Pantry.
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/

Coconut Curried Sausages Thermomix Recipe

  1. Ok, so I’ve tried the tray bake a few times, and the rice always comes out soggy and overcooked, but I have to cook it for another 20mins in my convection oven otherwise . What am I doing wrong? Am I still meant to put in the 850g water? HELP!

  2. 5 stars
    I halved the recipe as it’s only me in my household and it was enough for tonight’s dinner and 3 more meals! Perfect dinner for a cold night.

  3. 5 stars
    So tasty! My hubby said you can’t improve on a plain sausage, then I made him these and he admitted he was wrong. He now prefers his sausages curried and so does my toddler. Win win.

  4. 5 stars
    Seriously the BEST curried sausages ever! Totally NOT like what your mum or gandmothermade as kids!
    Full flavour, mouth watering and super easy!

  5. Just wondering what size tray is best for the tray bake? We’ve only got 1/2 kilo of sausages, will it still work? So much washing up with the thermomix method so can’t wait to try it!

  6. 5 stars
    Delish! My kids and I loved this, kids added a dollop of sour cream where as I added some chopped chilli.

  7. We absolutely love this recipe! Its a favourite in our house. But we’re doing a very low meat month. Does anyone have a vegetarian option?

    1. Hi Shelby, we cook this regularly but I cut baby potatoes up into small cubes and roast them with a combination of Lemon infused Olive oil and Sweet Hungarian Paprika and add them just as I serve, now that’s a DIVINE meat alternative & every time I’ve served it even as a side dish with friends and family I’m asked for the recipe! 🥰

  8. 5 stars
    As I took this meal out of my freezer for the 10th time this month I realised this must be my favourite meal! It has amazing flavour and is a really easy weeknight dish – would highly recommend to make!

    1. 5 stars
      I never thought I’d say it!! Wow this recipe is even better in the oven!! Thankyou another great recipe and so easy to make in three oven.

  9. 5 stars
    This was the first Skinny recipe I made and still a family favourite. I cook the rice separately though as while we loved the flavours, the first time the curry was a little strong for me and the kids. I also thicken the sauce with a bit of corn flour and add a heap of steamed veg as well. There’s usually enough left for 1-2 lunches for me – if I hide the leftovers!!

  10. If adding the veroma on top to cook veg, you may find the rice needs longer. This was certainly the case with brown rice instead of white, set to 27mins to allow for brown rice to cook. We needed to add a bit of extra water mid cook when we stirred the rice. And also cooked for an additional 10mins at the end. Then added the meat etc for 8mins.

  11. I don’t have the curry powder listed can I use standard curry powder as an alternative? Thanks

    1. Hi Emma, I know it’s not the same but I’ve made it with a combination of Cumin and Sweet Hungarian Paprika, so delish! 😀

  12. Hi. My rice was still crunchy at end cook time, had to put it in the rice cooker to finish it off. Always happens with all in one meals in thermy. What am I doing wrong?

  13. Woah! Best thermo meal to date.
    I feel like a professional chef!
    Sausages are beautiful and will try with chicken next time. This will be a regular for us!!
    Thank you!!

  14. Family favourite, so tasty. This time I did diced sweet potato in the basket instead of rice, and mashed it at the end with a bit of milk. Great dish thank you!

    1. did you cook it for the full 20 minutes. I did Risoni the other week but took it out before the full time was up. After about 12 minutes from memory.

  15. Perfect winter warmer dish. Cooked this tonight, again so delicious 🤤
    Really nice on toast the next morning too, hubby’s recommendation!!

  16. Cooked this for my family tonight and it got two thumbs up all round!!
    A quick and easy dinner that is packed full of flavour.
