Brussels Sprouts are at the peak of their season from September to February, a classic Fall crop of the hardiest cabbage family.

Many a time I have pondered by the aisle that had these edible buds on display. They looked like miniature cabbages to me. I gave this veggie a try, for the first time.It turned out great & we actually enjoyed the taste of the curry, having never tasted the veggie before.

Total time




  • 12 -15 Brussels Sprouts- 12 – 15( cleaned & washed)

  • 1 Shallots/Onions – a few/big finely sliced

  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil

  • 1 Tomatoes pureed

  • 2 ” Ginger

  • 3 -4 pods Garlic

  • 3 -4 Green Chilies

  • 1 tsp Jeera/Cumin seeds

  • 1 tsp Coriander seeds

  • 1 tsp Tamarind paste

  • 3 tbsp Desiccated Coconut

  • 1 tsp Cashew nuts

  • 1 tbsp Sambar powder

  • 1 can Coconut Milk

  • Salt to taste

  • 1 tsp Sugar to counter the bitter taste


  • Select small, bright green sprouts with firm tender heads. Wash them clean & make cross slits on top after removing the hard stalk like portion beneath. Steam them for 10 minutes so they turn soft, yet do not loose the green color( cooking them will make them loose all their color as well as nutrient value)
  • Now make a paste of Onions( half the onion), desiccated coconut, green chilies, ginger, garlic, cumin & coriander seeds, cashew nuts also adding sambar powder & tamarind paste to the mix.Set aside.
  • Next fill the slit Brussels Sprouts with the blended paste along the slits one by one & allow it to sit for half an hour so that the flavors blend well within the tender leaves
  • Warm some oil in a wok, fry the rest of the onions to a golden brown. Next add the pureed tomatoes & cook for a few minutes till the raw smell disappears. Then to this add the stuffed Brussels sprouts and fry them a little for a few minutes.
  • To the above add the rest of the blended mix, along with the coconut milk, sugar & salt to taste.
  • Simmer the stew for slow cooking until the flavors blend well & keep covered on heat for 10- 15 minutes.
  • Serve hot as a gravy over rice or with chapatis/tortillas, can also be had as a soup of thicker consistency.


  • Brussels sprouts are rich in Vitamin C, E , Iron & folate.They are believed to have potent anti cancer properties as well.
