Grilled Spicy Brussels Sprouts

Festive season started way back in October for us Indians and there’s been no looking back since. Apart from loads of fun and laughter, festivities also mean loads of yummy food, which more often and not is not very forgiving to the waistline. Festivals are no fun without delicious food so “khaana toh banta hai!” But at the same time I want to enjoy good food in my life as long as I can, hence all the sweet treats need to be balanced with healthy meals too. But as I always say-Healthy doesn’t need to be boring hence these spicy, tangy Brussels sprouts. Ready in minutes, they are a perfect accompaniment to a simple meal of mixed daal or as sides to some grilled fish. Try it now and you could thank me later 😉
