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.
