Asparagus Egg Thoran


Asparagus egg thoran is a real comfort food and it is stir fried asparagus with coconut,eggs and a touch of cumin.Asparagus is a healthy vegetable and is rich in fiber, folic acid and vitamins. I tried asparagus thoran when I saw  it in Nisha and Maya's blog and it soon became a family favorite. Once I tried this thoran with eggs and it tasted delicious.This is definitely one of the simplest recipe with asparagus. Give this a try..you will surely love it.


Ingredients
Asparagus - 1 bunch
Onion- 1 small
Coconut- 1/2 cup
Cumin- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Green chilly-2
Egg-2
Pepper powder- a pinch
Garlic-2 pods
Curry leaves
Mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp



Wash and clean asparagus. Discard its woody base and chop and keep aside.
In a mixer crush and mix shredded coconut, cumin and garlic and turmeric powder
Heat oil in a pan and splutter mustard seeds and fry curry leaves. Add onion,green chilly and fry till golden brown. Now add asparagus and salt and fry for two minutes( you can close lid and cook for a minute if you like it soft). Add the coconut mixture  and saute. Beat two egg,make a well in the center of the pan and pour in. Give it a good stir and allow the eggs to  get completely coated with the asparagus and get cooked . Sprinkle a pinch of pepper powder(optional) and serve as  a side dish for rice.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy..
