Bengali Style Mashed Asparagus (Asparagus Salsa)
------------------------------------------------
15 to 20 washed asparagus (cut them into pieces so that you can put them in
  a blender or in a food processor)
1 cup chopped onion
6 to 8 garlic cloves
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
Few mint leaves
1/2 tsp roasted black seeds and cumin seeds
1/2 cup mustard oil 
1 to 2 green chili or roasted red chili (optional)
Few drops of lemon juice

In a hot pan add 1 tbsp mustard oil. Then add all the ingredients in the
pan and stir fry for 5 to 10 minutes until everything gets tender and
cooked. Turn off the heat and wait for 5 to 10 minutes until everything
gets cool.

Now, transfer everything in a blender or food processor. While the food
processor is running, slowly add rest of the mustard oil into the
asparagus. Add few drops of lemon juice. Don't put any water rather add
more oil if the processor is not smashing the asparagus properly.

If you intend to make it like a dip, then add some water and olive oil.

When everything gets mashed it is ready to serve.
