Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts Subzi with Turmeric, Cumin and Mustard Seeds. Easy Spiced Brussels Sprouts. Serve in a bowl with Dal and Rice or as a side. Vegan gluten-free Soy-free Indian Recipe. Pin this post.
Here is another quick side to add to your bowl. Brussels Sprouts pan roasted with whole cumin and mustard seeds, turmeric and garam masala, then finished with sesame seeds, lemon and cilantro. The tempered spices add an amazing flavor profile to the sprouts. If you don’t have whole seeds, use ground spices. Add more os less sesame seeds. Add some fresh or dried coconut.
Brussels Sprouts is another one of those veggies where I want to do more with it other than roasting it in the oven. I’ve added it to curries and Dal, caramelized it with maple + spices and more. This version is a simple Brussels Sprouts Subzi (Indian dry veggie side), which is simply spiced but packs a ton of flavor. Serve as a part of your favorite buddha bowl, or Indian meal bowl with Dals or curries and Rice/ flatbread.

In South India, Karuna Society for Animals and Nature is a safe haven for animals in distress, providing vet care and shelter for street dogs, cats, others. Cows and buffaloes are rescued from illegal transport to slaughter, and wildlife- monkeys, deer, birds, and bears are rescued from traps and injuries.
