Stir Fried Brussels Sprouts with Coconut



Stir fried Brussels Sprouts with Coconut

Quick and delicious vegetable side dish with brussels sprouts flavored with coconut and the extra crunch of peanuts.Usually I roast brussels sprouts, but this is another wonderful way to enjoy this veggie. Do not over cook brussels  sprouts. It needs to remain crunchy. If overcooked it lose flavor attains a  sulfurous odour..the reason why most people keep away from the wonderful and versatile vegetable. This is less spicy and a good accompaniment for rice.

Ingredients
Brussels Sprouts- 20
Onion -1 medium
Ginger sliced- 1 inch thick
Garlic-2
Green chilly- 2
Grated coconut- 1/3 cup
Roasted peanuts- 1/3 cup
Cumin- 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric- 1/3 tsp
Hing- a pinch
Dry red chilly-1

Peel off and discard the loose leaves of the sprouts, wash and cut into half's and keep aside.  Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and cumin seeds. When the splutter add dry red chilly,garlic and ginger and slightly fry. Add hing followed by onions and green chilly and saute till onions slightly change color. Add turmeric,salt and the brussels sprouts and stir fry. Reduce flames cover and cook covered  for a minute. Remove lid and add shredded coconut and continue to stir fry in medium flame for another two to three minutes. Add roasted peanuts and stir fry in medium high for one more minute. Serve with rice.

Try this...
Hope you will all enjoy..

Spicy Kerala Chicken Roast is another nadan recipe and a family favorite. It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice.The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed chicken ) and then coated with the masala. Here I have shallow fried the chicken.It  tasted delicious with fried rice. Give this recipe a try...

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…
