Asparagus aar Pyaaz kali bhaja (Asparagus and Scallion stir-fry)
Now that the Farmer's Market has started, we took our little one for Saturday visits. He likes the trips, looking at the vendors and their offering just like other little ones who are out with their parents.
I bought several tomato and pepper plants. Then, I saw fresh asparagus and green onions, spinach, and other green veggies. I picked a bunch of veggies and for lunch, made some quick stir fry with asparagus and onions. It turned out to be a great combination and went well with dal makhani and brown rice.
Here is how I made it.
1 bunch fresh asparagus
1 bunch green onions ( you can also substitute it with a medium onion)
1/2 tspoon cumin seeds
2 sry red chillies
1/2 tspoon cumin seed powder
1/2 tspoon red chilli powder
1/4 tspoon turmeric powder
1 tbspoon lemon juice
salt to taste
1 tbspoon oil.
Chop the asparagus and onions. Then heat oil and temper it with cumin seeds and dry red chillies. Then add the asparagus, onions, spices, salt and stir-fry it for 7-10 minutes till its cooked. You may add few tspoons of water if needed for the vegetables.
Once cooked, sprinkle the lemon juice an serve warm.
