Brussels Sprouts With Mustard Seeds

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Sandi From CA

Love me some sproutage! ('Cept I haven't tried this yet. Just storing it here until I work through the 5-foot-high stack of printed recipes on my kitchen counter.) Many thanks to reviewer Chef #486725 for pointing out the missing oil in the ingredients which I've since added.

These were delicious. We halved and steamed them in the microwave before frying them to save time. The caramelization is super yummy, but did overpower and make the Indian spices very subtle. Though I am not sure if that was because of my change in cooking method. I used a half tablespoon of oil (missing from ingredients) to fry them.
