This weekend I picked up some brussel sprouts which look like cute little cabbages which I never tried before. I got the basic idea about brussel sprouts from the net, I added my own ingredients and when i tasted it I was surprised because it had a unique flavor with slight touch of cabbage.If you like cabbage you would love this too. My hubby really like it, you must try this vegetable as it has been rarely used in indian cuisine. You can serve it with rotis,rice or just as a appetizer, believe me it tasted awesome.
