Vandevi Asafoetida (Hing/Kaayam) Powder 50 gm
Asafoetida (also known as kaayam or hing) is a gum from a variety of giant fennel. Even small amounts of asafoetida give a comforting onion-garlic flavour, which is especially good in vegetarian dishes and curries or stews/soup. It is used widely in North and South Indian cuisine. Asafoetida is also a natural defeater of intestinal wind, and that alone recommends it for inclusion in any and everything that includes lentils or beans.
