Brussels Sprouts Stir Fry

When i spotted brussels sprouts at vegetable shop-Pazhamudhir cholai, i grabbed a pack without thinking what to cook with it. I have seen it on Indira's blog, but forgot its name, finally i got its name from the bill given by the shop. The next day i prepared brussels sprouts fry, just as i prepare cabbage stir fry. it tasted good. I also added flax seed powder towards the end, and it gave a nice taste. I add flax seed powder, which has Omega-3 fatty acids, to all my poriyal / stir fry.

Brussels Sprouts Stir Fry


Brussels Sprouts - 200gms / 20
Red Onion - 1/2
Capsicum / Bell Pepper - few chopped pieces of red and green colour bell pepper.

Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard - 1/4 tsp
Split Urad dal - 1 tsp
Curry Leaves - 8
Dry Red Chilli - 3

Optional add-on:

Flax seed Powder - 1 tsp
Grated coconut - 2 tbsp's


Wash the Brussels sprouts and remove the green outer cover of it. slice them into thin slice's.

In a Pan, heat oil, add mustard, when it pop's, add split urad dal, red chilli and curry leaves & roast them.

Add finely chopped onion's and capsicum's and fry along for half a min and then add the chopped brussels sprouts and fry it. it takes some 3-4 mins.

Add salt to taste. you can also add flax seed powder or grated coconut before the final stir.

Serve it with sambhar rice or with some kuzhambu.

The capsicum's and brussels sprouts mingle well and add on flax seed powder gives a different make over to this stir fry.

Life is busy here and iam trying to organize and learn to work. Iam also spending more time towards Nature, which cleanses my mind and helps me to face this world. so do u understand my mind is not stable and thus i could'nt concentrate here. Pray for me. Iam hoping for a better sunshine tomorrow and more happier tommorrow.

Have a Great Weekend!!
