Instructions
In the southern Indian state of Kerala, vegetables often are stir- fried with spices and coconut. These dishes, known as thoran, generally just enough liquid to help the vegetables cook, but not so much as to create a sauce. Hence, they are called dry currie. For our version, we stir-fry asparagus, not a typical vegetable on the Indian table, but its sweet, grassy flavor pairs well with the spices and coconut. For less chili heat, seed the jalapeño before slicing. Those of you who know me, know I do not like coconut. I will add it to this recipe but I will omit when I cook this for my family. I may add toasted pine-nuts toasted chopped pecans at the end to give it a little crunch. You coconut lovers, ENJOY. Don’t use pencil-thin asparagus; it will quickly overcook and turn soft and soggy. Opt for thicker stalks.
In a 12-inch skillet over medium-high, heat 1 tablespoon of oil until shimmering. Add the asparagus in an even layer and cook without stirring until deeply browned in spots, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and set aside.
Return the skillet to medium and heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil until shimmering. Stir in the coconut, shallot, jalapeño, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, turmeric and 1 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring often, until the shallot is softened and lightly browned, about 4 minutes.
Return the asparagus to the pan, increase to medium-and stir in 1 tablespoon water. Cook, stirring often, until the asparagus is just tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Taste and season with salt.
