When I lived in Berlin, Germany, one of my favorite things to eat was currywurst and pommes frites. After I came back to the States, I created my own version, which is a pretty close second. —Julie Merriman, Seattle, Washington
Place bratwurst and water in a skillet; cover and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes. Uncover; turn bratwurst and cook until browned and centers are no longer pink, 13-17 minutes longer. Remove and cool slightly. Cut into 1/2-in.-thick slices.
In the same skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook and stir until tender, 5-7 minutes. Add ketchup, broth, brown sugar, vinegar, curry powder and paprika. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, until slightly thickened, 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add sliced bratwurst; heat through.
Serve sausage mixture with french fries; sprinkle with additional curry powder.
