Asparagus pakora recipe, Asparagus Bajji

Asparagus meaning a shoot or sprout is a nutrient packed green vegetable belonging to lily family. It is a very good source of fiber and has impressive levels of micronutrients like calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, vitamin A, B6, C, E and K. So adding this miracle veggie to our diet makes us more healthy. Since it is rainy season I thought to share a easy pakora / bajji recipe with asparagus instead of showing basic pasta/ stir fry recipe. Just made basic pakora/ bajji batter, dipped asparagus spears and fried in oil. Voila simple yet yummy evening snack is ready in no time. Serve these pakora hot with ketchup and they will taste amazing! So let’s get to the making!

Ingredients
  1. 1. Asparagus – 20 nos
  2. 2. Besan/ kadalai maavu – 1 cup
  3. 3. Rice flour – ¼ cup
  4. 4. Red chilli powder – ½ tsp
  5. 5. Salt – to taste
  6. 6. Baking soda – few pinches
  7. 7. Water – for making batter (3/4 to 1 cup)
  8. 8. Oil – for frying
Note
  1. * 1 cup = 235 ml
Instructions
  1. Rinse asparagus thoroughly; break off any tough, white bottoms and discard.
  2. Cut the asparagus into 1 to 2 inch sections. I discarded the top part of the the asparagus too. Now with 1 asparagus we have 2 spears.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan. Meanwhile in a bowl add besan, rice flour, chili powder, baking soda and salt. Mix well, add water gradually to form a thick batter( I used around ¾ cup water).
  4. Dip each asparagus spear one by one in besan batter. Coat it well and drop it in preheated oil. Repeat the process until you finish the batter and all the asparagus are over. Flip the bajji after it has puffed. When both sides are cooked remove from oil and transfer it to a plate and serve it hot with ketchup.
Notes
  1. Make the batter thick which will help batter coat well on to the asparagus well. The batter from asparagus slides very quick so drop it quickly in oil and carefully.
  2. Make sure the hot is in right temperature not too high and not too low.
