Green Cuisine Asafoetida Hing Powder
Asafoetida Hing Powder (Ferula assafoetida) is a plant resin. As the name suggests it has an unpleasant smell so it must be stored in an airtight container. Fortunately, the smell dissipates in cooking providing an enticing fried onion or garlic-like taste.

Asafoetida Powder in an ancient spice that replaced an even older one, Silphium, a spice from Libya that resisted cultivation and was hunted to extinction by the end of the 1st Century AD. Asafoetida was discovered by Alexander the Great's soldiers as an acceptable, although inferior, substitute.

Asafoetida Powder remains an important spice in Indian cuisine and is sauteed in oil or ghee to make a garnish for vegetable curries. It is also used in savoury snacks, pickles and chutneys. Use this compound in small quantities and add directly to cooking liquids.

Compound contains gum arabic, rice, asafoetida, turmeric, colour E160.
