Asparagus Fritter (Pakora)


Asparagus also Known as Shatavari in Hindi. It has been used for centuries in Ayurveda as an aid for the reproductive system, particularly for females, and as a support for the digestive system.  Asparagus is the best supplier of folic acid and high in potassium. Making many dishes from Asparagus, here I am posting Asparagus Fried Rice and Asparagus Pakora.


  • 10-12 stalks of Asparagus, hard ends trimmed
  • ½ cup of Chickpea Flour
  • 1 tbsp. Rice Flour
  • ½ Tsp. Cumin Powder
  • ½ Tsp. Coriander Powder
  • 1/8 Tsp. Red Chili Powder (adjust according to your taste)
  • 2-5 freshly ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • Pinch of Baking Soda
  • Salt to taste


  1. Mix the Besan and all the spices together with a whisk.
  2. Add water slowly, a little at a time, mixing constantly to make a smooth batter.
  3. Add baking soda and mix properly, final batter should be like pancake batter.
  4. Cut Asparagus into 2-3 inch pieces.
  5. Dip all pieces in batter and coat in bread crumbs or in semolina.(Sprinkle pinch of Paprika If you like)
  6. Deep fry until brown and take out on a paper towel. Sprinkle 1 Tsp. lemon Juice.
  7. Serve with Coriander pesto or tomato chili sauce or any desired dip.
