How would you prepare Brussels sprouts to serve with the FOOD52 Roasted Butterflied Chicken with Cardamom and Yogurt? ;o)

It's very similar to a classic tandoori chicken. Here's a link: The other sides will be simple -- a multi-grain pilaf, roasted carrots and a pan sauce. (I'll add sliced onions, garlic and ginger to the roasting pan.) Thanks so much, everyone. ;o)

I'd caramelize onions and brussels sprouts halves in butter or oil a cast iron pan, and use cumin, coriander, mustard seeds, dried chili flakes as flavorings. When that awesome browning occurs, I'd add in splashes of sugar, cider vinegar (or apple cider instead of sugar + vinegar), raisins, maybe chunks of tart apple and reduce that. Essentially, I'm thinking chutney sweet-sour-fragrant with brussels, cooked in my favorite way.

That sent before I edited--but I think AJ knows what I meant. Use some water with the vinegar, etc. to make a nice sauce (and one can't really splash sugar!)

What I think might complement the main (and it's just me) would be to halve and then very thinly slice the brussels sprouts. Pan fry in ghee and finish with a splash of tarragon vinegar. Maybe toast some black mustard seed really quickly as an additional seasoning. Or, just stop after the vinegar.

This sounds good.
