Stir-fried Asparagus

I have been meaning to post this recipe for so long, but, I never got to it. Things got busy and food blogging took a back seat in my life. This is a very easy and nutritious recipe. I make it almost very regularly for my dear hubby. I never used to buy Asparagus thinking what will I cook out of it until one good friend told me about this recipe. Its become a everyday dish in our household now. Try this on its own or with dal and rice.


1 small onion chopped into length wise pieces
4 garlic cloves crushed
4 cups Asparagus(cleaned and washed)
4 tsp Olive oil
Salt to taste
1/4 tsp black pepper


1. Heat Olive oil in a non stick pan, when oil is hot add the crushed garlic pieces and fry till they are light golden in color.

2. Now add the onion pieces and fry till they are translucent on a medium heat. Add salt and fry for a minute or two.

3. Add the chopped Asparagus and the black pepper and stir fry on high flame just until they start turning vibrant green(until they are steamed) may be roughly about 2 to 3 minutes. Cover and turn off the heat and set it aside.

4. Serve hot with rice and rasam/dal or just by itself.
