    1      tablespoon    vegetable oil
      1/4  cup           slivered almonds
      1/2  teaspoon      yellow mustard seeds -- crushed
      1/4  teaspoon      cumin seeds
      1/4  teaspoon      fennel seeds
    3      cups          cooked brussel sprouts -- halved

    1      tablespoon    finely chopped fresh ginger
    1      tablespoon    fresh lime juice

 In a large, heavy, nonreactive skillet, heat oil over moderately high heat for

 Reduce heat to moderate and add Brussels sprouts, cayenne, and ginger. Cook

 about 4 minutes. Add a few tablespoons of water if vegetables look dry. Season
 to taste with up to 1 tablespoon of lime juice and salt and serve hot.
