With so much of work from the morning, finally squeezed some time to prepare this delicious and healthy chutney using Asparagus and Spinach. Asparagus is a spring vegetable which is used in stir fries, soups, stew etc. This is an amazing versatile vegetable which can be used in any form of cooking like Roasting, Grilling, sautéing etc. And coming to Spinach which is popularly known as Palak in Hindi and Pasala Keerai in Tamil have huge medicinal values. So using these amazing combination, prepared a tasty chutney which pairs perfectly with hot plain rice.
