Fruity curried sausages 

This is a quick and easy dinner. Good for cold weekend nights, and it's been a favourite of the kids for years. Quantities are really loose .. just however much you've got, and more or less curry powder to taste.

About 10-12 BBQ or breakfast sausages
1 big white onion, chopped
1-2 apples, chopped
a handful of sultanas (raisins)
yellow curry powder (I use Keens)
fruit chutney (Rosella is good)
a handful of dessicated coconut

Place the raw sausages in a pot of water and bring to the boil. Once they've cooked through (ie, turned grey), drain them and chop into bite-size lengths.

Brown the chopped onion and apple, then add curry powder and fry til fragrant. I didn't have any apples last time I made this, so used diced dried fruit (raisins, dried apple, apricot, pear) ...

Add the sausage bits, about a third to half a cup of the chutney, the coconut and a little water (enough to make everything wet so it doesn't burn).

Once it's bubbling, turn down the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.

Oh - keep the lid on while it's simmering - I just took it off for the pic.

Serve over steamed rice... yummmmmmmm.
