A dried sap obtained from the roots of Ferula plant, Hing or Asafoetida Powder is a popular ingredient used in Indian cooking. Native to Afghanistan and Iran, Hing is not used in its original form. It is dried, ground into a powder and often used in a compound form instead of its pure form. When dals and vegetables are prepared, it is often an addition to the tempering process along with other spices including cumin, ghee and onions. The beautiful earthy and nutty aroma of tadka adds delightful flavours to any dish it is added.
Hing itself is a pungent smelling spice with a prominent flavour that cannot be missed. Known as various names around the world such as stinking gum, devil’s dung or food of God, the spice do not come without its health benefits. Ayruveda use it as an ingredient for various remedies as well as our grandmothers including for treating digestion related problems, intestinal gas, mucous discharge, as antimicrobial, anti-coagulant etc.
A very potent spice, a pinch is enough to add big flavours in entire dish. To reduce its original bitterness, it should be added during the cooking process or during the process of tempering.
