Asparagus Sabzi

I was introduced to Asparagus some months back in a cookery show on tv.When I googled about this veggie I found out that it is one of the most nutritionally well balanced veggie which is high in folic acid.It is low in calories,contains no fat or cholesterol and a good source of fiber ,potassium,vitamin B6.So thought to include it in my meal and made this asparagus sabzi.The original recipe can be found here.


Asparagus 1 bunch
Tomato Puree 2 tbsp
Fennel seed pw 1 tsp
Ginger 1/2 inch piece
Garlic 3-4 pods
Red Chili pw 1/2 tsp
Oil 2 tbsp

1. Wash and remove the thick portion from one end and leave the soft end intact.Now cut into 1 inch pieces.
2. Heat oil in a pan and add fennel seed powder.Now add chopped/grated ginger,garlic and fry till golden in colour.
3. Add tomato puree,salt and fry till oil leaves the masala.
4. At this point add asparagus pieces,red chili powder,adjust salt.Give it a quick mix and let it cook uncovered for 10 minutes on medium heat.
5. Serve hot with chapatis or as a side dish.
