Asafoetida 1

Asafoetida – Yellow

Ground - 38g

Ferula asafoetida

Asafoetida has a pungent, unpleasant smell when raw, but when cooked it delivers a smooth flavour similar to leek or sauteed onion. It is made from the dried white resinous sap extracted from of a variety of giant fennel, which is difficult to handle so starch is added to make it more manageable. Yellow Asafoetida is blended with turmeric and is used mostly in Indian vegetarian meals.

Also known as: Ferula asafoetida

What others are saying

  1. A little goes a long way

    An excellent alternative to garlic and/or onion, and widely used in Indian cookery, I call this spice ‘transformative’. Also known as ‘hing’, asafoetida is fried in oil/ghee/butter etc at the start of cooking for around 30 seconds, and the pungent aroma turns into the most amazing fragrance. Perfect if you don’t like the after-effects of garlic or onion, or if you follow a FODMAP diet. A staple in my kitchen; you must give it a try if you’ve never used it before.
    Can also be used in addition to onion/garlic for extra flavour.
    I also use this very sparingly in complex salad dressings.
