This is a twist on the Chinese way of preparing stir fry using a super healthy food (asparagus) as the star of the dish. Asparagus is very easy to cut and cooks fast and hence fits in on any busy weekday. I love this dish because it combines a super food (asparagus) in a spicy, tasty side dish recipe.

How to make Spicy Asparagus Stir Fry (Indo-Chinese Fusion Recipe)
To prepare Spicy Asparagus Stir Fry (Indo-Chinese Fusion Recipe) heat a large wok, take about 2 tablespoons of the olive oil (or cooking oil) and sauté the ginger garlic paste until the raw smell goes away.
Now add and onions until slightly soft. Don’t soften it too much as we want the onions to retain some of their crunchiness.
Now add the asparagus pieces, some salt and cover the wok with a lid to cook them for about 5-7 minutes. This is where you want to be careful. Asparagus gets cooked very easily and you want the resulting dish to yet have a bright green colour rather than having a dull colour.
Once cooked, add the soy sauce and chili garlic and let the whole thing cook for about 2 minutes.
Do a taste test to make sure salt and spice is up to your taste. If you think it’s too spicy you can add a little brown sugar to sweeten the dish.
Finally, garnish and serve with chopped spring onions.
