    Hi all,
    I am looking for creative ways to use brussel sprouts.

    I have so far used them in sambhar and it gives a very distinct flavour. Like radish. I saute it in oil before adding the tamrind water and let it cook in it before adding the sambhar powder and dal.

    Dear BA,
    Select uniform sized ones, slit into 4 but with bottom intact, stuff as for ennai kathirikkai, steam in MW & saute with minimum oil in a non-stick pan.
    The stuffing is your choice including paruppusili.
    Love,
    Chithra

    Wow super idea chitvish maam. Going to try it out and post update. The one other thing I was thinking about is cutting into 4 and frying it and doing some kind of gravy.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Few things I have tried:

    (1) any cabbage recipes, work fine with brussel sprout too.
    (2) Any stuffing recipe - Capsicum, pakargai, ladysfinger, works fine
    (3) Mirchi ka salan recipe with stuffed brussel sprouts is very tasty.
    (4) Kondai kadalai + brussel sprouts (shredded like cabbage) curry
    (5) Potato + Peas + brussel sprouts

    (6) My own invention

    (1) clean and cut brussel sprouts into 4
    (2) tadka - mustard, urad dal, curry leaves, hing tumeric powder
    (3) then add chopped onions and add tomato and saute for 1 min
    (4) Add a cup of tomato sauce, konjam tamarind and 1 spoon of sambar powder/curry powder whatever masala powder you have and salt, let it cook for 3-4 mins.
    (6) Add the chopped brussel sprouts and then mix the content well
    (7) Then close it for 10-12 mins, regularly checking and turning it.

    A good dish for chapathis.. Basically, u can use this recipe for about any veggie as well :)

    (8) as a than in puli kulambhu
    (9) Along with any greens as a curry. I have used potato+spinach+brusselsprouts

    good luck !

    Wow Nandhu. Never thought that brussel sprouts had so much potential. You seemed to have tried out so many variations:bowdown.

    Thanks for the fb. Going to try them out.

    This is what I made finally:

    Ingredients:

    • Brussel Sprouts 12 small to medium sized
    • Tamrind 1 tbsp pods or 1 tsp paste dissolved in 1 cup water
    • Oil 3 tbsp
    • Mustard seeds 1 tsp
    • Asafoetida 1 tsp
    • Fenugreek/Methi seeds 1 tsp
    • Onions, chopped 1 cup
    • Tomatoes, chopped 1/4 cup
    • Sambhar powder 1.5 tsp
    • Jaggery os sugar 1 tbsp
    • Salt 1 tsp or to taste
    • Oil for frying 2 cups

    Procedure:

    1. Remove outermost layers of brussel sprouts. Wash to clean and dry it out completely (very important).
    2. Slit each brussel sprout until 1 cm from the stem/base. Create a crosswise slit to the same depth.
    3. Heat 2 cups of oil . Fry each of the brussel sprout and set aside to drain on paper towels.
    4. Heat 3 tbsp oil in a separate pan on medium high.
    5. Add mustard seeds. Once mustard seeds start popping reduce heat to medium(electric stove).
    6. Add the asafoetida and fenugreek seeds and saute.
    7. Add onions till translucent.
    8. Add tomatoes, tamrind water, sambhar powder, jaggery and salt. Let it cook on low till the sauce thickens (around 30 minutes).
