Asafoetida powder, also known as Hing, is a crucial ingredient in Indian vegetarian cooking. When cooked it produces a taste similar to onion and garlic, and has a unique smell and flavour called for often in Indian dishes with legumes and vegetables such as cauliflower. In Ayurvedic terms Asafoetida is a grounding herb that is thought to bring about balance, and was one of the most commonly prescribed herbs in the 19th century in the treatment of depression and mood swings. It is useful as a digestive spice that has the additional benefit of lowering cholesterol and reducing gas.
