Brussel Sprouts Masala


Two years back, I had brussel sprouts for the first time. One of my friends invited us for dinner, and she prepared an amazing south indian spread. When I saw brussel sprouts, I told my friend that I have never seen small cabbage like this. She told its called ‘Brussel sprouts’. She had prepared them with cumin and pepper powder. I loved it.  That week when we went to buy veggies, I was searching for this and got a pack.  Knowing all its healthy benefits Started cooking them regularly, vitamin A, vitamin C, folic acid and dietary fiber – so many good things about this vegetable. This version goes well with both rice and Chappati.

Brussel Sprouts Masala:

Preparation Time : 10 min | Cooking Time : 20 – 25 mins | Serves : 3

Recipe Category: Side dish


Brussel Sprouts – 1 lb

Onion – 1 big, finely chopped

Tomato – 2

Ginger garlic paste- 1 tsp

Garam Masala powder- 1 tsp

Smabar powder /Red chilli powder – 1 tsp (I used sambar powder)

Coriander powder – 1/2 tsp

Cumin powder – 1/4 tsp

Turmeric powder – 1/8 tsp

Oil – 1 tsp



  • Wash and remove a layer of leaves from the top and slit the sprouts, without cutting fully


  • Add oil to the pan, when the oil is hot add ginger garlic paste and sauté for 30 seconds. Add onions and saute till onions are cooked, and then add tomato
  • After onions and tomato are cooked, add garam masala, coriander powder, cumin powder, sambar powder, turmeric powder and allow it to cook for 2-3mins


  • Add the Brussel sprouts and Sauté well, and add required salt. Sprinkle some water and cover it with a lid and cook


  •  Cook till Brussels sprouts are cooked well and Masala is well coated


My Notes:

  • This dish goes well with plain/ variety rice  as well as with chappati
  • Instead of dry Masala, you can add water/ yogurt/ milk/fresh cream and make a gravy
  • Can add 1 tsp of tamrind pulp to make a tangy masala
