Cauliflower and Potato Mash:

4 heads cauliflower, cut into medium florets

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon salt, plus more if needed

2 teaspoons ground turmeric

1 teaspoon curry powder

2 russet potatoes, peeled and cut into eighths

1 pound grated white Cheddar

2 cups heavy cream

2 cups melted butter

Freshly ground black pepper

Mint Chutney:

1 cup white wine vinegar

2 teaspoons toasted coriander seeds

1 teaspoon chile flakes

Juice of 5 limes

1 bunch flat-leaf Italian parsley

8 ounces fresh mint leaves



Onion Gravy:

1 tablespoon olive oil

10 onions sliced

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup flour

4 cups chicken stock, plus more if needed

1/4 cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons malt vinegar

Curry Sausages:

Hog casings, for stuffing

5 pounds ground pork

1 bunch flat-leaf Italian parsley, roughly chopped

2 cups curry powder

2 cups diced shallots

2 cups white wine

1/2 cup salt

1/4 cup chile flakes


Special equipment:
Sausage stuffer
  1. For the mash: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Toss the cauliflower with the olive oil, salt, turmeric and curry powder. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, roast the cauliflower for 20 minutes.
  2. While the cauliflower roasts, boil the potatoes until fork tender, 15 minutes, and then strain. Melt the butter and cream in small saucepan. In a food processor (or large bowl and immersion blender) process the still-warm cauliflower and potatoes, slowly adding the cream and butter until you reach your desired consistency. Fold in the cheese, and then season with salt and pepper.
  3. For the chutney: Place the vinegar, coriander seeds, chile flakes, lime juice, parsley, mint and 1/2 cup water in a food processor, and blend until smooth. Season with salt and sugar.
  4. For the gravy: Heat a large pan over low heat. Add the olive oil and sweat the onions for 20 minutes. Add the butter and cook for 2 minutes, then add the flour, and cook for 1 minute. Pour in the chicken stock and cook for 10 minutes, then add in the cream and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Adjust the thickness of the gravy with more stock as needed.
  5. For the sausages: Rinse and treat the casings according to package instructions. Mix the pork, parsley, curry powder, shallots, wine, salt and chile flakes by hand in bowl. Using a sausage stuffer, stuff the mixture into the casings. Make each link 6-inches long, 16 links total. Cook the sausages on a grill or cast-iron pan set over medium-low heat for 10 minutes. If they're cooked over higher heat, they may split open.
  6. Serve on a large dinner plate. Place a scoop of cauliflower mash and ladle a small amount of onion gravy (about 1/4 cup) on top. Place 2 sausages on top of the gravy and cauliflower mash, and finish with a tablespoon of mint chutney.

Cook’s Note

Only rinse as much casing, about 8 feet, as you think you will need to make the sausage. Unused casing that has not been rinsed can be stored in the refrigerator indefinitely.
