Asparagus thuvayal/chutney

       I basically got the idea for this recipe when I saw Usha’s asparagus kootu. I knew that asparagus had a high nutrient value and is generally considered to be high in fiber, but I buy them very rarely. I have used them in my soup before , but I was not comfortable in making anything else with it.Just like broccoli or tofu or even mushrooms which I was never too fond off , but when I tried to indianize the recipe making it suitable for our taste buds and spicing them with Indian spices, they have become a favourite at home. So now asparagus is going to be regular thing too!!
