German Sauce. The best Schnell-Imbisse (fast-food stalls) make their own currywurst sauce, essentially a curry powder “flavored ketchup.

Great recipe, most authentic I've found. I like the idea of pureeing the sauce. I've done this a couple of times

I would suggest an additional step - Step 6- which is "Purée sauce in a blender". I amended the recipe as follows. I used 2 cans (800g in total) of chopped tomatoes (and not 2 cups) and I found that 1 tbsp. of "Hot" Curry Powder and 1/2 tbsp. Paprika were sufficient to produce a sauce comparable in heat to that provided I understand by fast food stalls in Berlin.
