My mom makes the best Koftas, or meatballs, ever. And 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.

My Brussels Sprouts Kofta is one amazing dish with some exotic flavors and super simple for anyone to try. 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.
