It seemed like every meal we cooked had a new element or a new dish. We all took turns cooking as well so that worked well too.
This asparagus was cooked during that time for a dinner with friends who were moving away. The combination of panch phoron, garlic and asparagus went so well together, I couldn't believe I hadn't made this before.
In other summer news, we are getting ready for a big trip. We all are traveling to India. I have traveled with one of the boys at a time, but two together? Any tips on how to keep them occupied during the flight?
How is your summer going? What are your plans?
Big bunch of asparagus - washed, trimmed and cut (I chopped it in half, but you can keep it whole too)
3 cloves of garlic - sliced thinly
2/3 tspon panch phoron (bengali five spice)
2 tbspoon olive oil
salt to taste
pinch of fresh ground black pepper
Let it cook on medium heat uncovered for 3-4 minutes. Then add the salt and pepper. Cover and cook for another 5 minutes.
