Print Recipe


  • 1 lb Bratwurst
  • 2 Tbsp ghee
  • 1 cup water divided, add more if you like the curry a bit thinner
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 can chickpeas about 400 gr, drain off liquid


  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped or grated



  • 3 -4 sprigs of curry leaves pick the leaves


  • 1 tsp salt or more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp sugar


Prepare bratwurst:

  • If you use raw bratwurst like I did, pan grill the brats on the pan with a bit of oil until lightly brown, about 5 minutes, turning them so they brown evenly. Add about 1/2 cup of water to the pan and cover. Lower the heat a bit and let them cook for the next 15 minutes. Let them rest for 5 minutes then slice into large chunks at an angle. If you use precooked  brats, you can slice them into large chunks


  • Preheat a large heavy-bottom pot. Add ghee and it will slowly melt. Add aromatics and stir fry for about 3 minutes. Add the spices, herbs, and stir fry for another 1 minute
  • Stir in the brats pieces and mix with all the spices and aromatics. Add water and bring to a gentle simmer for about 1 minute. Stir in chickpeas and seasoning. Let them simmer for another minute. Turn off the heat and stir in the yogurt. Have a taste and add more salt to your taste if needed
