This is Fast Food for me.
I bought a bunch of small white asparagus- they call it Deluxe, because it does not need to be peeled- but they are the tiny stalks that they wont sell otherwise. But with the "Deluxe" sign, they are sold to us at a high price.
I just chopped off half a centimeter at the bottom, washed them and I was good to go.
A box of cream cheese and some Ayvar are ingredients to be found in my fridge mostly all year round, some fresh herbs from the balcony and a Tempura flour bag from my Asian storage corner.
200 g Tempura flour
150 ml ice cold water
1 tsp dried onion powder
chili salt and white pepper
