Asafoetida (Hing, Heeng)
Asafoetida (Hing or Heeng) - a pungent powder from the perennial herb, Ferula which is native to Iran and India.
This herb has an very unpleasant smell when raw (hence its other names of devil's dung and stinking gum) but when cooked helps transform vegetable dishes, meat stews and fish with a fantastic buttery onion/leek/garlic flavour.
Try adding a pinch to hot oil or ghee (clarified butter) when cooking your favourite Indian dishes.
