Whether for the German favorite currywurst or simply as a delicious french fry dipper, you just can’t go wrong with curry ketchup. It’s sweet and tangy, with a yummy exotic spice undertone. Try curry ketchup with sweet potato fries. It’s really really good.

Cayenne pepper powder is the heat source here. Cayenne provides a strong medium heat (30,000 to 50,000 SHU), though it’s diluted here. Still, if spiciness is a concern, you can opt instead for a mild paprika. It’ll provide more of a simmering warmth than spiciness to this curry ketchup.
