Brussel’s Sprouts Fry

Brussel’s Sprouts Fry

Brussels Sprouts Masala Varuval:

Never been a big fan of this Brussels Sprouts. Though it resembles much like cabbage(mini cabbage)…the taste never compelled me to have more. I tried various versions before…from korma to curry, nothing appealed. Gave a final try with all my favourite strong spices…whoo that was a hit!!! This is the recipe…


Brussels sprouts 1/4 kilo
Turmeric 1 pinch
Chili powder 1/4 spoon
Olive oil few spoons.

Spices to be toasted and powdered:

Cloves 3
Cinnamon 1 stick
Fennel seeds 1 spoon
Cardamom 3
Peppercorns 1 spoon
Cumin 1 spoon
Coriander seeds 2 spoons
Red chilies 5

To be fried in oil and Wet-Ground to Paste:

Onion 1
Garlic 2-4
Ginger 1″-2″
Tomato 1 small.


In a wide wok, heat oil. Add the wet-ground paste and then followed by BS. Toss them to all the sides.

Add salt, turmeric, chili powder and the above powdered spices too.

Stir-fry over high heat till tender and the spices aroma turns fragrant and nice.

    we rarely find BS here but i like the taste, i find it slightly nutty here , they give a perfect bite………a recipe is waiting in my drafts.

  36. Sweta says:

    Malar-bought the BS and some tandoori masala.Made it with potatoes ans capsicum and some pine nuts-it turned out really well.You might want to try it next time.The masala has way tooooooo much colour and with the butter-it was quite an unhealthy recipe :(
