Brussel Sprouts Salad

So. my husband doesn’t eat Cabbage. Its nothing to do with the taste as I have tried many ways to make him eat, tried different recipes but as soon as he looks at it , he would say, “Oh! Its cabbage, I don’t like it” & I would be, “But you haven’t tried it yet” .

So one day without anyone challenging me, I accepted the challenge. I went to the super market & bought brussel sprouts, which I am sure my husband wouldn’t know are baby cabbages (I am so clever!!). Now the next hurdle was to make it taste as per his likings. He like Indian, he likes groundnuts a lot, hence I tried this Indian way!! My trick worked & now I won my challenge. BTW he still doesn’t know that it is a cabbage(winners smile).
