Asafoetida Powder (Hing)
Some interesting names associated with this spice. While the fragrance from the powder is a bit harsh and overwhelming; once cooked, this spice gives the aroma and flavor of mild leeks to your cooking.
Also called HING - this is the resin from the plant which is collected, dried, and then powdered.
It is very hard to find pure asafoetida. Most times you will find it cut with fenugreek powder. True asafoetida is a magnificent addition to your cooking - but make sure you keep it tightly capped in the cupboard!
