Asparagus-Carrot Pickle

Asparagus is a similar veggie to the banana stem.I have become a fan of this wonderful veggie after I cooked the Asparagus egg thoran,click here to see that recipe.Then, came the thoughts of a pickle with asparagus and carrots.Both equally nutritious and healthy even though pickle is not a healthy food as it contains more of salt esp for hypertensives.But once in a while,you would like to taste a pickle and this is a simple recipe too..

asparagus 4-5 sprigs
carrot 2
curry leaves
garlic 4 pods
fenugreek powder1/2 tsp
asafoetida 1/2 tsp
chilly powder 1 tsp
turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
oil 4 tsp
lime juice 2tsp / vinegar 2tsp (you can use lime juice if not preserving for long)

  • Wash,peel carrots and cut into thin stripes.
  • Wash and cut asparagus into thin stripes.
  • Mix it with a pinch of turmeric powder and salt.
  • Heat oil in a skillet,splutter mustard and curry leaves.
  • Add the garlic pods,saute for half a minute.
  • Add the veggie mix and add chilly powder saute.
  • Cover and cook for 2minutes.
  • Add the fenugreek powder and asafoetida.
  • Put off the flame and add the lime juice or vinegar.
  • Asparagus Carrot pickle is ready to serve.
