Brussels sprouts are leafy green buds which looks like miniature of cabbage. They are rich in Folic acid, Dietary fiber, Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Brussels sprouts usually grow during winter and so they always have a special part in holiday recipes in the form of salads, Stir-fry and roasted. Coming to cooking Brussels sprouts in indian style, Its always delicious when made as a gravy and can be served with any type of indian bread or rice. The purpose of making it as a gravy is to avoid the distinctive smell which most of us feel unpleasant. I'm sending this recipe to Vegan Ventures, Round 2 hosted by Suganya of Tasty palettes.

  • Brussels sprouts : 8-10 buds
  • Red or yellow Onion: 1 finely chopped
  • Tomatoes: 2
  • Cashews: 1 tbsp
  • Red chillies: 2 or 3 (big ones)
  • Cardamom: 2 crushed
  • Cloves: 2
  • Bay leaf: 1
  • Fennel seeds: 1 tsp
  • Ginger garlic paste: 1 tsp
  • Everest Sabji Masala: 1 tsp (or garam masala)
  • Salt as required
  • Sugar: 1/2 tsp
  • Corriander leaves for garnishing

How to make it:

Wash the Brussels sprouts in running water and slit open the bulb ends like "X". This helps in steaming the bulbs evenly. Steam the Brussels sprouts for about 7 minutes in a idli cooker until half done. Meanwhile, puree tomatoes, red chillies and cashew in a blender. Add little water if required. Heat oil in a pan, add bay leaf, cardamom, cloves, Fennel seeds and onions. Fry for a while and then add Ginger garlic paste. When onion turns light brown, add the tomato puree, sabji masala, sugar and salt and cook until raw smell goes off. Add the brussels sprouts and cook until the oil separates. Garnish with corriander leaves and serve hot with your choice of bread or rice.
