Buy Asafoetida (Hing)

India's method of flavouring vegetarian dishes to have the same rich savoury flavour commonly found in meat. A housewife's favourite. Use powder as any other dry spice at the beginning of the cooking process.

Please note: Asafoetida is a tree sap and thus very perishable when fresh. We must combine it with gum and a little amount of wheat in order to dry and transform it into a powder. Thus this is our only item that is NOT gluten free or 100% pure. We still strive to keep it as pure as possible, so our Asafoetida is 50%+ pure, and as good as we know is possible. Asafoetida in it's whole form is extremely hard - you need to use a microplane or a powerful electric mill for grinding. We would highly suggest getting it ground by us for convenience.

Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.

Asafoetida (Hing)

brenda S

as an Indian cuisine beginner I am not able to give much opinion on the quality of the spices. Overall shopping experience is good.

Jayashree Bhimsen

The flavor is too mild for me. I have to add a lot of the powder to get the right flavor. I think this is just my preference. Super service and
