Asparagus Stir-Fry is a quick vegetable side you can make to serve with plain white rice, whether jasmine or basmati. Asparagus is not generally used in Indian cooking, but here’s a great-tasting, slightly crunchy, vegetable dish that I’m sure kids and adults would like.

Asparagus has some vital nutrients and deserves to be part of a healthy diet. Asparagus is supposed to be very effective in treating arthritis, infertility, and toothaches.

Servings: 4
Cooking Time: 12 minutes


  • 1 bunch asparagus, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 4-5 tsp vegetable oil
  • Salt to taste

For Masala

  • 2 tsp cumins seeds (jeera)
  • 2 tsp coriander seeds (dhania)
  • 3-5 pepper corns
  • 6-7 cloves
  • 2 cardamom pods (optional)
  • 4-5 red chillies or 1 tsp red chilli powder (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder

Or you can use store-bought curry powder.


  1. Grind all the masala ingredients into a coarse powder (you can use a coffee grinder for this), and set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a nonstick pan or and add the asparagus along with some salt. Stir and cover and cook on medium high heat stirring occasionally, until tender.
  3. Add 3-4 tsp masala powder (or as much as you like) and 1/2 tsp oil and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes until the raw flavor of the masala is gone.
  4. Serve hot with plain white rice.
