Slow Cooker Curried Sausages

These delicious slow cooker curried sausages are the perfect dinner dish for when you need to feed a hungry family.

The flavors in this dish are amazing, and you get a slight hint of sweetness thanks to the fruit chutney along with the bold flavors of the curry powder. The sausages that you use can profoundly influence the outcome of this dish, so if you can afford it, try to buy some decent quality sausages.

This curried sausage dish is an excellent recipe if you find yourself with a ton of leftover sausages. If you have already cooked the sausages, you can just slice them up and add them to the slow cooker with the rest of the ingredients.

You should be able to feed roughly six people from a single batch of the dish. If you need to feed more, try to make some additional side dishes to go along with it. Alternatively, you can also double or triple the recipe.

Curried Sausages

The leftovers of this dish are well worth keeping as they will reheat the next day nicely. Store in the fridge until needed, they should last for about three days before needing to be discarded.

You can also freeze this dish and keep it for a few months before it will need to be consumed. It is the perfect method if you want to stock up on some quick and easy meals.

What to Serve with Curried Sausages

You can eat this dish just by itself, but I recommend having something to go with it. Mashed potatoes, roast potatoes, or steamed rice are all excellent accompaniments for this dish. It just comes down to what you are feeling like eating.

If you pick a potato side dish, you might want to leave or swap the potatoes out of the recipe to avoid ending up with way too much potato on your plate.

Prep Time15 Minutes
Cook Time6 Hours & 30 Minutes
Total Time6 Hours & 45 Minutes


  • 500 g (1.1 lb) beef or pork sausages
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 tsp garlic, crushed
  • 3 potatoes, cubed
  • 2 carrots, cubed
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 Tbsp curry powder
  • 2 Tbsp fruit chutney
  • 500 ml (16.9 fl oz) beef stock

To Thicken

  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp water


  1. In a frypan, cook the sausages over medium heat. Once cooked, allow to cool, and cut into bite-sized chunks.
  2. In a slow cooker, add the sausages, onion, garlic, potatoes, carrots, curry powder, fruit chutney, and the beef stock. Mix slightly.
  3. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  4. Mix the cornstarch with the water until it forms a paste. Next, mix the paste and peas into the curried sausages.
  5. Cook for 15 minutes or until thickened.
  6. Serve & Enjoy.

Recipe Tips

  • Adding the peas towards the end will prevent them from going a greyish green color and losing their flavor. With that said, you can add them at the start if you do not mind them losing color.
  • Fruit chutney can be left out of the dish, but you will lose a bit of the flavor and sweetness.
  • The potato can be swapped or left out of the recipe. However, potato is a great way to bulk out a dish. If you are swapping it, then sweet potato is an excellent substitute.
  • To cook this dish faster, simply cook on high for two to three hours.

Note: I use a 5.5L (6 Quart) slow cooker for all the recipes that I have on this website unless specified. If you have a smaller or larger slow cooker, then you might need to adjust the ingredients.

If you are not feeling like eating curry, then you can do a basic sausage casserole in the slow cooker instead. It is super delicious, and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a good sausage recipe.

A sausage recipe that I absolutely love is the creamy sausage and potato casserole. It has delicious chunks of smoked sausage, potatoes, onion, and a creamy sauce. It is an absolute must-try.

    Awesome recipe, one of my favourite twists is to cook the potato (or sweet potato) in my air fryer for 30mins and adding it at the end. Adds a bit of extra texture to the curry.

      Hi Marco,

      Any fruit chutney should work fine. I used Rosella Chutney (Australian), it’s main ingredients are Pear, Tomato, Sultanas, Apple.

    Amazing….cannot believe how much we loved this recipe. Only thing I did different was adding a little more curry powder, but that is a individual taste thing. This one will be a regular on the table.

    Made this last weekend, 18 serves in fact. Cooked it up for the staff at the local hospital ED. They all loved it! Personally, I forgot to save myself a serve but the messages I got was that it was great.

    I’m a fussy eater and I see you said you can leave out the fruit chutney but what can I use to keep the sweetness please. And could I use onion powder instead of a fresh onion or could I blend the onion up to like a puree?
    Thank you

      Tomato chutney or relish will work as a good replacement. If you want something simpler, then a tablespoon of honey or plain sugar will work fine.

      Yes, onion powder or puree onion will work fine as well. Roughly one tablespoon of onion powder will replace the onion.

    I have always used marmalade in my curried snags and it works really well for that sweetness you need!

    Can you put cream in it instead of cornflour to thicken it?

      Hi Anna,

      You can use cream to help thicken it. I am unsure how much cream you will need to use and how it will impact the dish’s flavors.

    Do you have to cook the sausages first? Or can you just put them straight in the slow cooker?

    1. Avatar for Gus
      Gus on

      You can add them straight into the slow cooker. Add the sausages whole as I do not recommend slicing them if you are not browning them first.

    Nice simple curry that was eaten by kids who didn’t say it was spicy ๐Ÿ˜ƒ . Would also work with some tomato paste

      I use two tablespoons of tomato paste instead of chutney and add some brown sugar and vinegar. Very kid friendly.

      Hi Ivan,

      If you are using powdered beef stock, use 1 tsp for every 2 cups (250 ml/8.5 oz) of water.

    Made this one last night, I did not have any fruit chutney so just used thick smokey BBQ sauce and ketchup. It came up a treat, thank you for a great recipe.
