    Chef #749692's Note:

    Don't be fooled by the strange sound of coconut with asparagus. Because of the spices and hot green chillies these ingredients combine to create a wonderful spicy asparagus treat. This is a popular preparation of asparagus in Southern parts of India. (Service with rice and rasam or saambaar, pappadum and yogurt.)

      This had the wonderful spices of Indian cooking, yet the true flavor of asparagus came through so that the ingredient wasn't lost by the rest of the dish. I served it over brown basmati rice with Indian red lentils and had two wonderful meals out of it. Thank you for sharing this easy, healthy, and tasty dish!

      This made a delicious side to serve with curry chicken. I did reduce the amount of green chili peppers to 2 serrano peppers and used 1/4 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes. Loved the flavor that the coconut added to the dish. This made 2 nice servings as a side dish. Something I will make again.
