Asparagus Spicy Stir Fry
Shatawar ki Bhaji

Mamta Gupta

This is a simple way of making asparagus a little different from the usual, steamed version. Do not add too many spices or overcook, or you will lose the delicate flavour. You can stir-fry many other vegetables this way. Serves 2

10 asparagus tips, 5/6 per person
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced (optional)
1 tbsp. oil
1/2 tsp. cumin or mustard seeds
1 whole chilli (for flavour)
1/4 tsp. chilli powder or flaked chillies, adjust to taste
1/4 tsp. salt


1.Wash and drain asparagus.
2.Heat oil in a pan and add cumin/mustard seeds.
3.When seeds splutter, add whole chilli and chilli powder. Stir for a few seconds and quickly add asparagus. Chilli burns quickly, so be quick.
4.Add salt, stir for a few seconds, turn heat down and cook covered for 3-4 minutes. They should not lose their crunchiness.
5.Serve hot with any grilled meat/fish/chicken dish and Salad of choice or on top of a Nan or Pita Bread or toast.
