Free Gift

Regular price $6.00 Sale

 

This raw, 100% pure asafoetida powder, also known as hing, is 8-10 times stronger than the compound blends you'll find elsewhere. Asafoetida is a staple ingredient in South Indian cooking, particularly in vegetarian dishes. Asafoetida has a uniquely pungent raw smell and flavor that mellows into a deeply full bodied flavor when cooked, and is probably most comparable to washed cheese rinds.  We love adding asafoetida to dahls, vegetarian curries, and loads of other South Indian dishes. Gluten free, vegan, paleo, keto. Get cooking with our recipes below: Asafoetida Powder.

 Asafoetida powder, edible gum

 

Asafoetida comes in two main forms.

As a brown powder it is the full-strength dried gum that has been ground; it is highly odorous and must be used in very, very small amounts.

It is easier and better to source and use it as a yellow powder, when it has been diluted with flour or rice flour and turmeric, but it must still be used scantily. Different producers temper it different ways, so check the packaging for directions – but see below for guidance.
