Brussels Sprouts Kofta for #MothersDay #SundaySupper

“Time and again
come joy come pain
your smile your words
of wisdom
of life
of the values
instilled in our minds
has taught me so much
that I can carry forward
your message
to my kids,
teach them
the values
of living this life
with love,with compassion
with a purpose
with passion”


One remarkable woman is on my mind today.A woman who has endured so much pain in the past few months..Lost her husband,survived a life threatening health scare and still trying to recover,but yet she smiles in all her pain,yet she speaks of postivity,of happiness,of joy,of love.Yeah that’s my Mom.And I’m so greatful that she is a part of my life.

Brussles Sprouts Kofta

My mom makes the best Koftas ever.And today I thought of recreating her favorite recipe using Brussels Sprouts along with some dried sweetened cranberries and I’m elated that it turned out absolutely delicious.A new family favorite indeed.Its a special dish that requires a special occasion for it to be served.

Brussels Sprouts Kofta 4

My Brussels Sprouts Kofta is one amazing dish with some exotic flavors and super simple for anyone to try.I recently spotted sliced Brussles Sprouts at Trader Joe’s and couldn’t resist buying one pack.It made the whole process so much more quicker.The koftas have Indian spices, ginger and dried cranberries and are bound together using some Gram Flour (Besan) easily available at your local Indian Grocers.The combination of the tart, sweet,spicy flavors is insanely good and will convert any Brussels Sprouts hater into a Brussels Sprouts lover.The only thing that you have to be careful about is to not cook the koftas for too long in the sauce.They might collapse.You can cook the sauce separately and add the koftas into the sauce just before serving and cook for a couple of minutes.It should be perfectly coated in the juices and taste delicious.Enjoy.

“Wishing all you Moms a Very Happy Mother’s Day”
