Brussels Sprouts and Potatoes....

I had to share this recipe with you all right away. I made Brussels sprout and potatoes for dinner, its so simple and delicious.Brussels sprouts belong to the family of Cabbage but are little bland in taste as compared to raw Cabbage. So i was thinking how to cook them, most common methods used to cook these are steaming, boiling and roasting but i decided to play a little different with them. I cooked them with potatoes by sauteing them with spices to add a little Indian flavors to it and they turned out amazingly delicious.Potatoes paired really well with Brussels sprouts, i also added a dash of lime juice for that fresh tangy flavor and the rest was history.


  • Brussels sprouts 2 cup (slit in halves)
  • Potatoes 2 medium size cubed
  • Nigella seeds 1/4 tsp
  • Cumin seeds 1/4 tsp
  • Turmeric 1/4 tsp
  • Red pepper flakes 1/4 tsp
  • oil 2-3 tbsp
  • Cilantro 1/2 tsp
  • Lime juice 1 tbsp
  • Salt as per taste

Heat the oil in a saute pan and add nigella seeds, once the seeds start to splatter in a minute or so
add Brussels sprouts and potatoes. Stir them all together and add turmeric and salt, stir it once again and cover the pan, let them cook on medium low heat for 10 minutes till both sprouts and potatoes are done.Make sure u keep stirring the pan time to time while its cooking to prevent them sticking to pan or getting burned.Lower the heat if needed, these will be cooking in the steam so no need to add any water. While its cooking, heat another pan and roast cumin seeds in they will roast really fast so keep an eye and make sure they get deep brown but don't burn. Make a coarse powder of cumin by crushing them roughly. Once the sprouts and potatoes are done sprinkle the cumin powder, red pepper flakes and lime juice.As always check for the seasoning and add chopped cilantro. Serve hot Enjoy

Gosh...that looks and sound so delicious. I tried brussel sprouts once, cooked by a friend, and didn'tlike it. I must try this one. I love the tangy taste. Thanks for sharing.
