Button mushrooms and asparagus are sautéed with cumin seeds and onion creating the flavor base for this Indian-inspired rice dish. Garam masala lends a hint of warming spice. This dish is a perfect use for leftover rice, and you can substitute 2 1/2 to 3 cups cooked rice for the uncooked grains. Make sure the rice has cooled fully before stir-frying with the vegetables or the mixture may become gummy. Garam masala is an Indian spice blend that includes cumin, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom, among others. You’ll find it at most grocery stores.
