Storing- once cooled, refrigerate in a glass container, using plastic containers are fine but they do tend to stain due to curry powders.

Freezing-you can do this two ways, temper the sausages with the spices and freeze without adding coconut milk and only add coconut milk at the time you cook and reheat. this way you can extend the freezing period longer.

If you cook the sausage curry as the recipe below and want to freeze, make the coconut milk thin(1/4 cup coconut milk added to 1 cup of water), freeze and use within a week.

Reheating- let the curry reach room temperature and reheat over the stovetop or use a microwave.

Stop food waste by-cook only as much as you need.

If you make extra, portion out and use as mentioned above for meal ideas.
