Currywurst is the most popular sausage in Berlin and Hamburg, however, the sausage itself has not much character as any sausage can become “currywurst” as long as it is topped off with the currywurst sauce. In Curry-Bratwurst curry powder is one of the major ingredients so the sausage does not depend on sauce for the flavor. The sausage, can of course, be served with a curry sauce as well.
