I have tried brussels sprouts stir fry and steam but never heard of curried. Must be spicy and a wonderful salad for spicy lovers. voted useful

Peachpuple: It's not overly spicy. Because of the yogurt & dried apricots it's an interesting fruity, spicy mix. I especially enjoyed the leftovers the next day straight out the fridge. Very refreshing.

I like brussel sprouts just cooked in a plain way, l but your recipe is certainly different and combines some interesting foods. I will give it a try. Thanks.

My husband, who's a picky eater and doesn't like cooked veggies, loves brussels sprouts! Go figure. So I'm always happy to have a new recipe that uses them. I'm sure this one will be delicious. Thanks for sharing! Voted up.

I don't mind brussel sprouts, but this will give them some life. I like your ingredients, e.g. mango chutney, which will make the dish interesting and different. Thank you - voted up, interesting.
