Erase part of the sprout hate this Christmas and serve up some Brussels Sprouts Pakora. Use the sprouts whole or shredded and add a chopped onion to the mix for a more Bhaji like snack. If shredding, you don’t need to pre-cook the sprouts. Add a chopped onion and shredded sprouts to the batter mix along with the fresh coriander and chillis. If you don’t have chillis, chilli powder will do.
