This spiced ketchup is ubiquitous in Germany, where it’s slathered onto currywurst (sausage). It’s popular in cities with German roots like Philadelphia and Portland, OR.



  1. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until softened without browning, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until softened, about 1 minute. Add the curry powder, paprika, mustard powder and salt and stir to evenly coat. Add the cider vinegar and Worcestershire, stirring with a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits. Stir in the ketchup and sugar, then bring to a boil and remove from the heat.
  2. Transfer the ketchup mixture to a blender along with 2 tablespoons water and blend until smooth, adding 1 more tablespoon water if too thick.
