Asparagus Stir Fry – Spiced Up!

Asparagus Stir Fry – Spiced Up!

Also Known As Asparagus Poriyal, Asparagus Varuval. Asparagus Vepudu. Asparagus Subzi. Asparagus Kura.

For a fun-filled weekend, people go to theme parks and holiday resorts! To me, the happiness gets complete only¬† when I shop at ethnic stores! My new found activity is to hit the farmer’s market on Saturdays! I get bit frustrated when it snows out here heavily, preventing me from gazing around!! However, I make pretty good excuse to pay a visit to the Mexican stalls!

And, that’s how I got this Asparagus shoots pulled fresh from the yard…and that too for a great deal. I just couldn’t wait to try them in Indian way, all spiced up! This plan was going on for many years. Anyway…most of the time, I end up sampling n relishing it, before making any clicks!! Today, I practiced some good resistance and there you go…a wonderful recipe for you all. :)

  • 1 bunch asparagus
