braised brussel sprouts

On busy days at home (which day isn't?) the subjis are often simple. Here's a prime example and a family favorite:

  • brussels sprouts, sliced in halves
  • 3-4 T ghee
  • 1 t fresh ginger root, minced
  • 1/4 hing
  • 1 t ground coriander
  • 1/4 t black pepper
  • 1 t turmeric
  • water
  • salt, as desired
  • a squeeze of lemon juice 

  1. In a frying pan on high heat, chaunce in the hot ghee the ginger until browned. Add hing and then the coriander and pepper and turmeric.
  2. Add the brussels and stir fry a few minutes until they begin browning.
  3. Add water and cover. Cook on high heat until the water evaporates and brussels are tender and beginning to brown on the bottom.
  4. Add salt and a little lemon juice as desired and offer to Krishna.
