  • 14 oz vegan sausage links (cut into rounds about 1 cm thick)
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp paprika (divided. Can also use Kashmiri chili powder)
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp ginger garlic paste (divided)
  • 1 tbsp pomegranate vinegar (or apple cider vinegar or coconut vinegar)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 medium potatoes (finely diced)
  • 1 large onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 tbsp cilantro (finely chopped)
  • 2 medium tomatoes (finely diced)
  • 1-2 cups vegetable stock (or water)


  • Place the sausages in a bowl with turmeric, 1 tsp paprika, cinnamon, ground black pepper, 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste and the vinegar. Mix well to coat the sausage pieces with the spices. Set aside for at least 30 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Heat oil in a skillet or wok and add the potatoes to it. Stir-fry the potatoes over medium-high heat until they are a light golden-brown. Add the onions, remaining ginger-garlic paste and cilantro along with the remaining paprika and a little salt and stir-fry until the onions begin to turn golden-brown.
  • Add the tomatoes and cook until they turn pulpy. Now add the marinated sausages, stir to mix, and then add in a cup of vegetable stock or water.
  • Add more salt if needed, and bring the curry to a boil. At this point, you can add more stock or water if you want a saucier curry. Cover and cook the curry for another five minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
  • Turn off the heat and serve hot with bread rolls or rice.
