Stuffed Brussel Sprouts curry
When I first stepped in singapore, I was wondering what these could be. I thought they were baby cabbages and later realised that these are called brussel sprouts. Its been a long time that I'm watching them, so lets give a try I thought.
Brussel sprouts look like small cabbages but are sweeter. An amazing source of vitamins K, C , A , B6 and also contains folic acid and fibre too.
They taste wonderful, but make sure that they are not overcooked. Doing so produces strong flavor and smell.
Choose the ones that are firm, green and not too large.
