Delicious and flavorful Brussels sprouts cooked in coconut milk in the Instant Pot…
My new favorite veggie is now Brussel sprouts and made this way. I’ve had baked and roasted Brussel sprouts, but I really enjoyed this particular dish.
Brussel sprouts are beautiful and resemble small cabbage, it’s a bit hard so I had to steam cook them first in the Instant Pot. After that, made an onion-tomato masala, seasoned with some Indian spices and combined the steamed Brussel sprouts with the masala. Towards the end, added coconut milk. The addition of coconut milk really elevated the taste of this dish greatly.
Do give this recipe a try and I assure you that this will turn int your new favorite dish.
