This Indian asparagus stir fry is a simple, flavorful dish that brings a unique twist to typical asparagus recipes! Fresh asparagus, ginger, and cumin seeds are sautéed to perfection in olive oil and finished with a splash of lemon juice for a tangy kick.
Plant-Based: This Indian style asparagus recipe is dairy-free, vegan, and vegetarian – making it a delicious addition to a plant based diet.
Begin by cutting the fresh asparagus into bite-sized 1-inch pieces. Remember to remove the tough ends of the asparagus stalk.
Next, heat some olive oil in a pan or large skillet over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds to the hot oil.
Wait for them to start popping, which helps to release their flavor. Quickly add the ginger to the pan and fry for a few seconds.
Now, add the chopped asparagus to the pan. Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon salt and stir. Cook it, uncovered, for about five to ten minutes.
This quick cooking method ensures the asparagus cooks just right, retaining its tender buds and vibrant green color.
