2.Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan, roast red chillies, corriander seeds, channa dal, uraddal and fenugreek seeds until golden brown. Let it cool. Add coconut, asafoetida powder, tamarind and salt and grind into a thick paste. 
3.Take a spoon of the paste and stuff inside the slit brussels sprouts.
4. Heat oil in a pan, add onions and fry until golden brown. Add the stuffed brussels sprouts and the remaining paste. 
5.Cook covered on a low flame turning to the other side at regular intervals to get them evenly roasted. Cook until done. 
Serve hot! I made this as a side dish for mor kuzhambhu and the combination was perfect.
