Asparagus Poriyal

This is also another of Nisha's recipes which I have been making for a while now, I should actually say that I make it every week coz my son just loves it and its so crunchy and delicious.

You will need:-
Asparagus - 1 lb
Garlic - 2 o 3 cloves crushed
Pepper powder - as spice required
Salt to taste
Olive oil - 1 tbsp

Trim the asparagus and then cut it into small rounds and keep it aside and mince 3 cloves of garlic.
In a nonstick skillet pour the olive oil and when hot (turn the heat to medium) add the minced garlic and fry for a few seconds till the aroma of frying garlic fills the air.
Now add the asparagus and saute it till it turns to bright green (5-7 minutes) and add the pepper powder and the salt and stir well.
Let it cook for another 2-3 minutes and then switch it off and let it just rest for a few minutes.
Now transfer it to a serving bowl and serve it as a poriyal for anything.
Rememer not to cook it for too long otherwise it will become soggy and loose the crunchiness.
