Brussels Sprouts Curry


Little miniature cabbages, cooked in Indian style. Good side for rice or chappati.
8 nos Brussels sprouts
1 no Onion (finely chopped)
2 clove Garlic (crushed)
2 nos Green chilli (slit open)
2 tsp Bengal gram (optional)
¼ tsp Mustard
¼ tsp Cumin seeds
¼ tsp Split black gram
2 pinch Asafoetida powder
5 nos Curry leaves
1 pinch Turmeric powder
¼ tsp Salt (or to taste)
4 tsp Oil
2 tbsp Peanuts (pounded)


Soak bengal gram for an hour. (Just optional) Remove a couple of layers from each Brussels sprout and wash in cold water. Cut them lengthwise into half and shred them into thin layers. Heat oil in a pan, splutter mustard, cumin seeds, split black gram and curry leaves. Add the pre-soaked bengal gram and toast. Sprinkle asafoetida powder, add chopped onions, green chillies, garlic and saute for a while. Then add the shredded sprouts along with turmeric and salt. Cover with a lid and let simmer for 7 to 8 minutes. Now open and check whether its tender and soft. Sprinkle freshly pounded roasted peanuts. Stir fry for few more minutes and serve.


Normally for any cabbage preparation coconut would be added, but in this recipe I have tried with pounded peanuts. Freshly grated cconut can also be added for this recipe.

    Hi Mullai,

    This is the second recipe of urs I tried today after ‘Paneer Butter Masala’. The brussels curry came out very well. I m all excited to try ur Gobi Masala recipe tomorrow.

    I m a kinda person whoz lazy to give any feedback/comments on the internet. But after visiting this website and trying the all excited to post a comment.

    I have been planning to make mango pickle karnataka style. They call it ‘Bisi opinakai’ (Hot Pickle). It would be nice if you post a recipe on this.

      Assuring that you won't be disappointed after trying any recipe from this site. BTW, will explore your Kannada version pickle, but might take longer to get here. Actually I totally rely on my local markets for produce and moreover this is not a good season for mangoes, this post got to wait for a while. Pls create a recipe request, just to clue me or else it would pass off with this comment.
