Serves 4


2 packs Bratwurst
4 white crusty rolls
1 head of lettuce
1 spring onion, sliced finely

1 cucumber, diced finely
1 onion, diced finely
1 clove garlic, chopped finely
1 red chili, chopped finely
bunch fresh parsley, chopped
2 tbs olive oil
salt and pepper

1 onion, chopped finely
1 apple, diced finely
2 tbs curry masala powder
1 can diced tomatoes
2 tbs Dutch ‘appelstroop’ or thickened dark apple syrup
40 g palm sugar
splash red wine vinegar
oil for frying
salt and pepper

For the salsa, combine cucumber, onion, garlic, chili and parsley with the 2 tbs olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. 

Sauté onion and apple, and add curry powder during the final minute. Add the canned tomatoes and bring the sauce to a boil. Add apple syrup, palm sugar and vinegar and wait for the sauce to thicken. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Process in a blender until the sauce is velvety and pour into a bottle or jar.

Cook the Bratwurst on a hot grill until browned and grill lines have formed on all sides. Wash (and dry) the lettuce leaves. Cut the rolls and ladle a spoonful of sauce on the bottom half. Add lettuce leaves and top with a Bratwurst. Top with cucumber salsa and more curried tomato sauce. Garnish with the spring onion.
