During my visit to California, United state; I had opportunity to taste Brussels Sprouts several times, veggie can served & prepared many ways…Do you know Brussels sprouts are named on “Brussel” (the capital of Belgium 🇧🇪). It was cultivated in Brussels and subsequently expanded to whole Europe & other countries of the world.

Brussels Sprouts is a wonderful veggie; I cooked few recipes there. one of them is “Brussels Sprouts Masala”, the Indian variation. My son and his friends were very happy and appreciated the Indian variation. The dish is as delicious as pretty in look.
