Brussels sprout stir fry

Recently, I attended a ‘Fall gardening workshop’ where I saw cute buds of Brussels sprouts while walking around the community garden. This intrigued me and I took a fancy to it. I wanted to use it in a simple stir fry on my first trial.  Being the  miniature cousin of cabbage it has all the anticancer compounds and the typical smell to it. Frying in coconut oil was my choice to enhance the taste.

Brussels sprouts

Remove the dark green outer leaves and the stalk that can give a bitter taste.

Simple ingredients


1 cup Brussels sprouts
2 green chillies
1 carrot
1tsp. mustard seeds
1tbsp. coconut oil
Few curry leaves
Salt to taste
Few drops of lemon juice

  1. Remove older leaves and stalk portion of Brussels sprouts and cut each into two halves lengthwise.
  2. Microwave for a minute sprinkling some water.
  3. Heat a pan and add coconut oil to crackle mustard seeds.
  4. Add the curry leaves and chillies slit in half.
  5. Mix well and add the half cooked crunchy sprouts.
  6. Wash, peel and grate carrot.
  7. Add to the pan and stir for a minute.
  8. Transfer to the serving dish and add a dash of lemon.

The aroma that fills the kitchen will force you to pop some in your mouth immediately.
