Brussels Sprout Stir fry – Indian style Brussels sprouts recipe – Keto /Paleo recipe

Brussels sprouts is a very rare vegetable which encounters our kitchen counter. But after coming to USA, I am seeing this veggie in all shops and have been including in our diet very frequently. So, I started making many Indian style recipes out of it. It belongs to the same spices as that of cabbage. This can also be called as baby cabbage and in Tamil it is ‘ KalaiKosu’.  Brussels sprouts a good source of protein, iron and potassium, and they also offer other benefits that can boost your overall health like Vitamin C, Fiber, Folate, antioxidants, and more.

Brussels sprouts subzi or stir fry can be made as simple as it is. This can be served with Roti or rice. But when we are in Low carb diet (Keto or Paleo), this can be consumed as a salad. Trust me this taste so good and can be eaten as a salad for lunch or dinner. It keeps you full for longer time when you eat it with coconut or cheese or paneer.
