Quick Meal Curried Sausages - Coconut Curried Sausages - Budget Rice Meals

Makes about 20 curried sausage meals, in about 20 minutes for the time poor household or financially focused or budget poor. This is quite a favoured meal in our household.


3 cans of coconut lite cream/milk
2 cans of lentils drained (if you use dry lentils you will need to remember to soak them for at least a day before use)
1.8kgs of Sausages (you can always substitute for a meat more to your liking sausages are very cheap for a lot of bulk)
2 packets of curry mix (lamb curry, sausages curry)
1 dessert spoon of minced garlic
Rice (Brown rice is healthier, more fiberous - allow for extra cooking time though)

You can add:
Carrot (freezes quite well for about 5 weeks.)
peas (best not to use frozen peas as we have found re-freezing to be a problem and taste is lost)
Corn (can use tinned corn,or fresh)
Chick peas (tinned)
Potato (doesn’t tend to freeze well, and some people don’t like the texture after if has been frozen.) I think curries always taste fuller with potato.

Multi tasking is the key to getting this cooked quickly so read ahead first - I myself am likely to leave this recipe on the computer screen and run around the kitchen like a headless chicken.

RICE - on a heating source
Bring water to boil in a pot for rice
Put rice on when water is boiled.
Bring water to the boil with the rice in it.
Turn off heat put lid on pot.

Sausages - in the grill or on the bbq
Cook sausages on BBQ or in the grill
chop the sausages

Curry sauce - on adjacent heating source
In a pan (large pan) bring coconut cream or milk to boil it will thicken, add dessert spoon of minced garlic.
add curry mix
add lentils and other veggies
Add warm cooked chopped sausages

Serve on rice

Pack the rest away in containers for lunches and more dinners, put them in the freezer when they have cooled down. I generally gauge this as stopped steaming and nice to touch.

Ok so you might be a bigger curried sausage fan than I first thought...

Did this work out for you?

      I love sausages, even though they love my waistline a little too much, but I'll give this one a try! Sounds delicious!
