Asparagus Paratha, another entry into my Paratha section. I have added extra ingredients to the paratha, to tinkle your tasty buds. The yogurt which softens the dough along with ginger to take care of the digestion part. Cumin which is good for health and chili powder to add up spice to the paratha. The onions to give a crunchy bite while munching the soft Asparagus pieces.
Asparagus – To my knowledge this vegetable isn’t cooked much into South Indian Cooking. South Indian recipes has country vegetables and Seemai kaigarigal – which means the vegetables which were introduced by the Britishers during their reign in India, for example Carrot, cauliflower, French beans to name a few. And Asparagus still out of the daily menu in Southern India. Though we get in supermarkets and have in restaurants, because of its diffident nature to gel with the Local recipes. I haven’t tried much with Asparagus, the first trial which has given me confidence to move on with other dishes. Hopefully I experiment with this vegetable 🙂
