While visiting my daughter in Berlin, we became hooked on the "fast food" of Germany called Currywurst. It is a Bratwurst browned on a flat top and smothered in a spicy curry ketchup sauce. Along side are crispy fries served with mayo. The combination is nothing short of addicting. I made it my mission to duplicate it back home. After researching recipes on line, and trying them all, I think I came up with the closest to that of Berlin's. More impressively, my daughter thinks so too!

2 tablespoons vegetable oil                                          
1 large onion, chopped
2 1/2 tablespoons curry powder
1 tablespoon hot paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cups whole canned tomatoes with juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

  In a medium sauce pan, saute onion in oil until it's lightly browned. Add curry powder, cayenne, and paprika. While stirring, cook for one minute. Crush tomatoes in your hands and add them to the pot, along with their juice. Stir in sugar and vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste.
  Bring it to a boil, lower heat and simmer for 25 minutes. Pour into a blender and blend until smooth. Strain the sauce, and return it to the pot to heat through. Serve over cooked bratwurst.
