Here is the recipe for a healthy and absolutely delicious asparagus thoran that I tried from Look Who’s Cooking Too. I had been on the search for asparagus recipes when Nisha posted this yummy thoran. I usually make asparagus stir-fry by adding olive oil, pepper powder, garlic and salt but I never thought of making a thoran with it. This thoran looks almost like beans thoran and had a slight crunch to it which I really loved. If you do not like it crunchy, you can cover and cook for some more time. Thanks a lot for sharing this recipe, Nisha.
1. Asparagus – 1 lb, washed and cleaned
2. Grated coconut – 1/2 cup
3. Green chillies- 2, slit
4. Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
5. Cumin seeds- 1/2 tsp
6. Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
7. Curry leaves- a sprig
8. Dry red chilly – 1
9. Oil – As required
10. Salt – To taste
1. Clean and chop the asparagus (after discarding their lower hard ends) to thin rounds.
2. Crush the grated coconut, green chillies, cumin seeds, turmeric powder together to a coarse mixture, either with your hands or pulse it in a mixer.
3. In a deep pan, heat the oil, splutter mustard seeds and brown the dry red chilly. Add the chopped asparagus, curry leaves and saute for a minute. Cover with the lid and cook for a few minutes at medium-low heat. Now open the lid and add the coarse coconut mixture. Mix well, close the lid and cook at medium-low heat until the asparagus is almost done(takes about 10 mts). Open the lid and stir fry at medium heat for a few minutes until the thoran becomes dry. Switch off.
