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..
