Asparagus Pepper Rice | Rice Recipes

A simple recipe for a quick lunch today. Though asparagus is a seasonal vegetable, we sometime also get it around the festive period. I love asparagus and if I see it I just can't resist buying it. Usually we eat it sauteed in olive oil and butter with lots and lots of garlic. But sometimes I also make Indian style recipes with it. Asparagus Pepper Rice is one of the easiest ways to use asparagus and any left over rice. It is a great add on item for a family lunch or dinner.

1 cup asparagus, chopped fine
1 medium onion, chopped fine
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp hing
Salt to taste
1 tbsp oil
2 cups cooked rice

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the hing, mustard seeds, and cumin seeds.
  2. Then add the onions and fry till transparent.
  3. Now add the chopped asparagus, stir and fry until cooked.
  4. Stir in the cooked rice, salt to taste, and the ground black pepper.
  5. Mix well to ensure that all the ingredients are evenly spread. 
  6. Cover and cook for 2 minutes.
  7. Turn off the heat, allow the rice to sit for another couple of minutes.
  8. Enjoy warm with salad and raita.
