Asparagus Chutney

Today this wonder and rare veggie caught my eye in that store!! How many ever times i try to say this veggie name right, i end up pronouncing it wrong. This is quite a Tongue Twister to me. Does this happen to you? Yes, Yes I am talking about Aspagarus... no no (see I did it again ) Asparagus. :-) Okay now say this 'Asparagus' 10 times... Done!! If you did it right, sorry no prizes for you, But it is sure a exercise for your mind. Okay, enough play with my favorite veggie, now Let's see the Indian Twist I gave to this  Tongue Twister veggie.
Asparagus Chutney

Actually I have been missing this vegetable for quite some time in India. But Today I jumped up when i see this vegetable at Namdhari's in Bangalore. I used to cook this with milk a lot for kids ( in Dallas), as it is so tender the curry will be done in 15 minutes. It is Quick and Easy for Mommy and Soft and Creamy for Kids. But i like it most when it is Grilled with light sprinkle of salt and olive oil. But these days, I am in the mood of chutneys, I thought How about Asparagus Chutney? That is it, with that thought, this recipe is innovated in my kitchen. Here is the recipe for you, Enjoy! :-)

 I have tried some special shots with these spears... and these two are the winners of the several I tried.

Asparagus - 1 small stalk
Garlic - 5 to 6 cloves
Green Chili - 4
Tamarind - 1 Tbsp ( or one marble ball size)
Cumin Seeds - 2 tsp
salt - 2 tsp
Oil - 1 Tbsp

and Ingredients for Taalimpu


  1. Trim the Asparagus stalk at the end, and cut into small pieces.
  2. Heat the Pan, and add the Oil. Once the oil is hot, add the cumin seeds, followed by the garlic.
  3. Add the Green Chili, and Asparagus pieces. Give it a quick stir and add the tamarind.
  4. Close the Lid and cook it on slow for 5 min or until Asparagus becomes tender.
  5. Let it cool for few minutes and Grind it along with salt, until smooth and Top with Taalimpu ( Indian Tempering)...

Your Twisted Asparagus Chutney is ready now, Don't wait and eat this with that Hot white Rice and enjoy all the flavors and spices in this Chutney. :-)
