    Asafoetida is always cooked in fat first, so fry a little in oil or butter when starting a curry - the smell will fill your kitchen. Use it with other vegetables normally found in Indian cuisine, like potatoes, peas, and cauliflower for a surprisingly irresistible background flavour reminiscent of garlic and onions.

  • Origin & History

    Asafoetida is made from a dried and powdered sap that comes from the root of a tree in the carrot family. It's also known by names like hing and devil's sweat. South Indian food is almost exclusively vegetarian, so asafoetida adds the smooth and savoury flavour of meat and an intangible taste you canÕt get elsewhere.
