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.
