  • 4 cups Brussels sprouts cleaned (approx. 20 Brussels sprouts)
  • frying oil


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon mild curry powder
  • 1/3 cup sparkling water


  • 1/3 cup fine breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup panko flakes (or more fine breadcrumbs)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons Za'atar (or your favorite spice mix!)


  • Steam the Brussels sprouts for about 15 minutes until soft. 
  • In a bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the batter. In a second bowl, combine the ingredients for the breading. 
  • Heat the frying oil in a pot or wok (add enough so that the Brussels sprouts can swim in the oil, but don't fill the pot more than half full). 
  • Dip each Brussels sprout first into the batter, then in the breading and carefully lower it into the hot frying oil. It should only take 1-2 minutes for them to get a crispy and golden outer layer. Transfer them to a plate lined with kitchen paper to remove excess oil. 
  • Drizzle the Breaded & Fried Brussels Sprouts with store-bought or homemade Sriracha Mayo. Enjoy!
