For those that don’t really enjoy sprouts (Hugh!) or simple need to use them up, why not try out this recipe as it’s delicious, healthy & very much better tasting than it may first sound. For those (like me) that don’t actually might the sprout, well its just another way to enjoy one of your 8 a day.

  • For the ‘balti style’ sauce you will need the following:-
  • 3 table spoons Oil
  • 4 medium Shallots (finely chopped)
  • 3 inch section Ginger root (mashed)
  • 2 cloves Garlic (mashed)
  • 2 large Tomato (deseeded & chopped)
  • 1 table spoon Paprika
  • ½ table spoon Turmeric
  • ½ table spoon Cumin
  • ½ table spoon Coriander
  • ¼ table spoon Chilli powder
  • 250ml Tap water
  • For you main vegetable dish you will need:-
  • 3 table spoons Oil
  • 2 large Onion (coarsely clopped)
  • 5 handfuls Brussels sprout ( Dressed to remove old leaves & course stalks)
  • 1 knob Butter (unsalted)
  • 1 Handful Fresh coriander leaves (coarsely clopped)
The sauce:- • Roughly chop the ginger, garlic & onions before adding to your food processor for a quick 30 second blitz. • Empty the resultant mix into your preheated saucepan (that contains 3 table spoons of oil) & cook on a medium heat until lightly brown. • Add the tomato’s, dry spices & water to the mix before bringing to the boil. • Once boiled, reduce the heat to low, cover and allow the sauce to simmer gentle (stirring on occasion) for 30 minutes. • Remove from the heat & rest. The veg:- • In a suitable wok/saucepan heat 3 table spoons of oil on a high heat before adding the coarsely chopped onions which you fry until lightly brown. • Reduce the heat to medium, add your sprouts, a pinch of salt & then cover to allow the contents to steam in its own juices for around 8 minutes (add a splash of tap water if your sprouts are a little old or dry!) • Give the vegetable mix a good stir & check how soft your sprouts are* before combining these with the sauce from above. • Heat the entire mix thoroughly for another 2 minutes before adding a knob of butter & Fresh coriander leaves. • A further minutes cooking, gentle stir & you are ready to serve up! Forget the knives & forks, this meal should be eaten your hands & japati bread! Depending on the age, you might need to give this stage a little longer to help them along!
