  7. Once the meat gets done, add the spring onion, aubergine, Chinese chive and stir well while frying all

I got the half bunch of white asparagus left.
This time, I boiled it and seasoned with chopped sour plum and dried bonito.
Sour plum and dried bonito are typical Japanese food stuff can get Japanese food shop.
This was very good. The mild sourness of the plum enhances the fresh flavour of white asparagus!!
