Good to know
Asafoetida is made from the resin of a plant and is certainly a quite controversial spice, as the smell is more than habitual. Also known as "devil's dung", asafoetida smells a bit like onions, garlic and rotten eggs, changes its smell and taste when it is cooked and goes to the sweet. For the Indian brahmins it is used as a substitute for garlic or onion, as onions are considered an aphrodisiac, and therefore its consumption is not allowed.
poultry, lamb, fish, squid, cauliflower, beans, lentils
Use whole or ground, but please be very economical. It is best to dissolve in fat or fry with it, as the taste development in water takes a long time. Please do not use with onions as the aroma will become too intense.
Full taste development
Soak single grain (or several grains) in water for a few hours and season with the water.
The strong smell disappears when heated.
Don't give flu a chance
There are some studies that can demonstrate the effectiveness of asafoetida for the treatment of the flu. For example, some new drugs based on the active ingredients in the asafoetida have been developed.
Taking asafoetida increases cancer-fighting antioxidants in the blood.
