  2. Strain the mixture and put it in a glass container. Knead the cereals with the Mugi Miso and the chopped pistachios. When the ingredients are amalgamated then add the asparagus tips cut into very little pieces and, finally, shape the croquettes handling the blend with your hands wet, batter them in the sesame seeds and fry them in hot oil.
