The sausages in Japan are mainly European style smoked sausages. I came across the uncooked raw English style sausages in Australia for the first time. I still prefer smoked sausages and I especially like German sausages. I used to cook this Curry Flavoured Potato Salad with German Sausages quite often in Japan, but it’s been difficult to cook it here in Melbourne because I couldn’t find German sausages.
But now, thanks to ALDI supermarkets, I have easy access to German food. Smoked sausages are available from those stores. I love this salad.
