Brussels Sprouts Korma

Brussels Sprouts Korma

Brussels Sprouts Korma:

Brussels Sprouts White Kurma. Kilai Koss Vella Kurma.

Honestly I have never seen this vegetable in Chennai or any other places, I lived in(India). But my Coimbatore friends used to boast (often) about one particular vegetable…that I didn’t knew. Yes, that is Brussels sprouts! Or simply ‘Kilai Koss’(in native tongue). Maybe the hilly areas produce them a lot, like Ooty, Coonoor and Kothagiri. So like Coimbatore, Pollachi, Avinashi…people enjoyed it for years!:) And my guess is ‘Kilai Koss’ name must have come, coz’ they bud out in many branches!!?? Anyway, why to dig into etymology.


Brussels Sprouts 1/2 kilo
Coconut grated 1/4 cup
Green chilies 4-6
Cloves 3
Cinnamon 1 stick
Poppy seeds 2 spoons
Garlic 2-4 beads
Ginger 2″
Coriander seeds 2 spoons
Cumin 1 spoon
Oil few spoons.


Sligtly fry all the above mentioned ingredients(except sprouts) in oil and wet grind the same.

Now stir-fryt he veggies in oil for couple of minutes and run this wet ground paste on top. Continue frying for few minutes.

Then add 2 cups of water, simmer and cook till tender.

Serve to go with plain steamed rice or chappathis.
