brussels sprouts pakora recipe christmas

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.

Merry Christmas!
