Asafoetida/Fenugreek Blend

$8.00$11.50

This powdered gum resin is used in Indian cooking.  It has a foul smell, but when cooked it takes on an onion/garlic/leek flavor.  Known as food of the Gods, it is also said to aid with digestion.

Asafoetida (Hing) is often used as an onion/garlic substitute in Indian dishes. Use sparingly–a little goes a long way.  This blend uses Fenugreek as a processing agent rather than the more commonly found wheat.

Cumin

$6.00$20.50

Native to the Mediterranean and South Asia, Cumin is also a signature flavor for Central American and European cuisines.
