Description : - Asafoetida has a pungent, unpleasant smell when raw, but in cooked dishes, it delivers a smooth flavor, reminiscent of leeks. This spice is used as a digestive aid, in food as a condiment and in pickles. Its odour and flavor become much milder and more pleasant upon heating in oil or ghee, acquiring a taste and aroma reminiscent of sauteed onion and garlic. It is also said to be helpful in cases of asthma and bronchitis. Asafoetida powder, also known as Hing, is a crucial ingredient in Indian vegetarian cooking.
