Cook the aspargus in bunches.

Whilst they are cooking, fry the garlic cloves and the bread in a frying pan with olive oil until they brown.
Then, drain them and place them into a mortar to crush them with the saffron, the cumin, a tbs oil of that we used for frying and a little of water to thin it down.

Brown the flour in the frying pan and slowly add water, wine (optional) and the mix we have in the mortar and weŽll get a sauce.
