Brussel Sprouts In Peanut Gravy

( Click image for enlarged view )

Brussel sprouts in one of my favourite veggies after coming to US. I love this veggie as it has got a nice crunchy , mild sweet flavor and looks like a mini cabbage.

I had already posted one version of brussel sprouts curry. This time I wanted to make something with more gravy and goes well with roti or rice. In this curry brussel sprouts is cooked with tomato n onions and simmered in a creamy and delicious peanut gravy.

Preparation Time :15 min
Cooking Time : 30 min
Serves 2

Ingredients
  • 12-15 Brussel sprouts
  • 1/4 cup peanuts
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup chopped tomato
  • 1/4 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/8 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp garlic ginger paste
  • 3 red chillies
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • pinch of hing
  • salt to taste
Cooking Procedure

Wash the sprouts and cut the bottom which is hard and remove the outer leaves and again wash

Cut each brussel in 2 parts along the length or in quarter depending upon size, heat one tbsp oil in a pan and shallow the brussel sprouts for 3 to 4 min or till it light golden brown.Keep it aside.

In the same pan heat 1 tsp oil add peanuts and fry till they start changing color, add sesame seeds and fry for 30 seconds then add red chilli and fry till sesame seeds change color. Immediately shift it to a plate and let it cool. Once it cools blend it to a nice powder.

Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds when it splutter, add onion garlic ginger paste,turmeic powder and stir till light golden brown. Add tomatos and cook till soft.Add the coriander powder,hing,sugar,salt and stir until oil saturated out of gravy.Then add brussel sprouts and stir n blend the mixture with the brussel sprouts.

Now add the peanut powder mixture and stir nicely and add 1 cup water. Let is simmer on medium flame and stir occasionally till brussel sprouts are soft.Add water if required. After 15-20 min the brussels will be soft and your is ready, take it off the flame.

Serve hot with roti or rice.

Note:
  1. To adjust the consistency add water to the gravy and keep stiring frequently to prevent the sprouts from sticking to the vessel.
  2. You can also microwave for 10 min to cook the brussels instead of cooking on the flame for the last 15 min. But you need to stir every 3 min in microwave.
  3. In place of brussel sprouts u can use any other veggie like eggplant, bell pepper, paneer, mushroom.
  4. Brussel sprouts is available in spencers food mall in chennai too

Hi. That gravy has a very hyderabadi touch, quite similar to baghare baingan curry with peanuts and sesame. Surely a winner.
