What is Hing and how to use it?

Asafoetida is also known as hing comes from the resin of giant fennel plants that grow wild in Afghanistan and Iran. In addition, Hing can be used to aid digestion, gas and furthermore treat bronchitis and kidney stones. During the Middle Ages, some people wore dried gum around their necks to help ward off infection and disease.

Small amounts of Asafoetida give a comforting onion-garlic flavour, which is especially good in stews, curries, and vegetarian dishes. A ½ teaspoon of the powder can be substituted for 2-minced garlic gloves or 2/3 of a cup of minced onion. Tiny amounts give a gentle lift to cheese dishes, tofu, salad dressings and so much more.
