  1. I made this tonight and it was absolutley delicious… i was a bit hesitant when it had apples ans chutney but so glad i went ahead and didnt judge a book by its cover

  2. I made this last week but added about 1tsp tumeric, 1tsp cumin, 1 extra tsp of curry powder, 1tsp red chilli flakes, and 2 cups beef stock. Served it with mashed potatoes. It was divine. Making it again today!

  3. This is the best dish I have made in my slow cooker! My fiancé and I loved it!
    Will be making it a lot more very easy and so tasty!


  4. The whole family loved this one. Have to admit I was a bit hesitant with fruit chutney but gee it was nice.

  5. I made this specifically for my children (1 and 3) so I ‘kidified’ it slightly by par boiling the sausages first, removing the skins and dicing. I also added diced potatoes, carrots and peas. I found it a touch too hot towards the end (for the kids not for me it was delicious!) so I added a tin of coconut milk to calm the spices. Teamed with some jasmine rice I had clean bowls all around. Definitely a winner 🙂

  6. Absolutely delicious! Definitely a winner in our house. So quick and easy.
    I used a whole jar (320g) of Chunky Fruit Chutney from Aldi and it wasn’t too much.
    Was planning on having some leftovers…….but it was so delicious, everyone went back for 2nds!

    Really enjoyed this! I substituted the fruit chutney with a mango chutney I had in the fridge instead which was still delicious! I did find it was quite watery coming to the end still but think this may be due to the fact I had 2 larger apples (should have just used 1 instead!) so I had to turn on high to try and reduce the liquid but apart from that it is highly recommended – even with the curry which I am not normally a big fan of, was perfectly balanced!

  8. Pauline another 5 Star tasty addition to my favourite list. Added a little more curry powder and Rosella fruit chutney as we like spicy. A definite keeper. Thanks!

    We really enjoyed this. I halved the recipe as there’s just two of us and I still managed to freeze enough for us to have another night 🙂

  10. I made this recipe today and it was so yummy even my very fussy hubby enjoyed it and he even asked for another bowl full, we had it with rice and it was delicious. This will definitely be in our weekly rotation of meals. So easy and so Yum!
    Thanks Pauline for a great recipe.

  11. Added 4 tsp curry powder & 3 cloves the apple went unnoticed and gave lovely flavour – win win!!! This will be a regular one for us and budget friendly as well
    Hubby woofed it down had a second helping he said it was absolutley beautiful! Servied meal with mashed potato !!

  12. This was so yummy! I didn’t put the ginger in as we didn’t have any, but next time I will pop some in. I also added more chutney that the recipe states as I love it. I served with mashed potato, yumm! ?

  13. I made this today for the first time. I did a big batch and added celery, carrot, spinach, beans and lentils so I’d have plenty of meals to freeze . It was delicious.

  14. This was delicious. The only change I made was I used tomato chutney as I had no fruit chutney. There is 4 containers in the freezer for an easy meal. Will definitely make again

  15. 5 stars
    5 stars, BUT….. I made a lot of changes out of necessity, based on my fridge and pantry…

    *8 thick sausages instead of 16 thin.
    *Had no onions – used dried chives.
    *Used powdered ginger and garlic.
    *Had no fruit chutney, so used Bunya Nut relish with some plum jam to sweeten – the nutty flavour was devine , mixed with the sweetness of the plum jam, and slight bite of the curry.
    *Was watery still after 4.5hrs on low, so added penne pasta for last half hour and it soaked it up perfectly.
    *Probably only made enough for 5 serves.

    Husband went back for seconds and is now groaning on the couch, overfull, but still telling me how delicious it was!
