Brussels sprouts are these cute green veggies which look like baby cabbages, they belong to the same family and both have anticancer properties. I had tried them roasted, they tasted good, but the last couple of times, it didn't smell good and I gave up cooking this. Only later did I come to know, this vegetable gives out a sulphurous odor when it gets overcooked. After a long time, I bought these again, this time I made these pakoras with them, of course not a healthy way of cooking, but I think, once in a while, you can have them. I was not too sure about making these, but they turned out really superb and delicious..

The mixture should be of the consistency, where you can spread it while dropping in the oil. Only then, you'll get crisp pakoras.
You can leave out the basil, I had it, so added it.
Don't over fry the pakoras, remove them when they start turning golden.
