Asparagus Thoran

Asparagus thoran 2

Ingredients(Serves 4 - 5):

Asparagus                  --    250 gms
Turmeric powder    --   ½ tsp
Green chillies            --    4
Shallots                        --    2 small ones
Shredded coconut   --   ¼ cup
Eggs                               --   1 optional
Black Pepper              --   ½ tsp
Mustard seeds           --    ½ tsp
Red chillies                 --    2
Curry Leaves             --   few
Oil                                   --   2 tbsp
Salt                                 --   to taste


Clean and chop the asparagus into small pieces. I usually don’t use the harder part at the end. Mix the turmeric powder, slit green chillies, chopped shallots,salt and shredded coconut into chopped asparagus.

Heat the oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds and let it splutter. Add the red chillies broken into small pieces and the curry leaves. Then add the asparagus mixture and sauté for a min.  Close the pan and let it cook for another 5 -6 min on a low flame. Check in between to make sure that it doesn’t burn to the bottom.

When the asparagus is almost done, break the eggs into the pan and mix well. Sprinkle a pinch of salt. Let the egg cook. Do a taste check and add more salt if required. sprinkle the pepper and give a good mix.
