Asafoetida, Ground Spice Mix 70g

Spice mixes from Amla NaturAdd flavour and balance with spices


Spices are not just great flavour-enhancers, they come with therapeutic properties as well. Sauté your spices in Ghee and add to your dishes, add some to soups, stews and sauces as they're cooking or sprinkle over prepared vegetables or rice at the table. Convenient, and mouth-wateringly delicious!

Ground Asafoetida


Asafoetida is a strong flavoured resinous spice that is useful for balancing Vata. Also known as Hingu, and is a crucial ingredient in Indian vegetarian cooking.

Cooking


This spice is used as a digestive aid, in food as a condiment, and in pickling. It typically works as a flavour enhancer and, used along with turmeric, is a standard component of Indian cuisine, particularly in lentil curries, such as dal as well as in numerous vegetable dishes.

It is widely used in South Indian and Maharashtrian cuisine, which is mainly vegetarian, and is often used to harmonize sweet, sour, salty and spicy components in food. Asafoetida also serves the purpose as a vegetarian alternative to make food taste more full-flavoured and savoury. The spice is added to the food at the time of tempering. Sometimes dried and ground asafoetida (in very mild quantity) can be mixed with salt and eaten with raw salad.

Derived from a species of giant fennel, asafoetida has a unique smell and flavour. It is called for often in Indian cooking, primarily with legumes and dishes featuring vegetables such as cauliflower. While on its own, the smell may strike you as overpowering and somewhat unpleasant, in cooking it mellows out and produces a flavour similar to onion and garlic. In India this ingredient is crucial for the Jains, who do not eat root crops.

Ayurvedic Properties

Unlike garlic, it does not affect tamasic (dulling) on the senses and the mind. Asafoetida further strengthens Agni (the digestive fire) and calms Vata (air / ether element).

Asafoetida ( ???? ) is the dried latex exuded from the rhizome or tap root of several species of Ferula, a perennial herb that grows 1 to 1.5 m tall. The species is native to the deserts of Iran and mountains of Afghanistan.

Spice mixes from Amla NaturSpice Wise


The exotic colours and heady aromas of spices can elevate an ordinary dish into a sublime feast for the sense of sight, smell and taste. What's more, most spices also come with therapeutic properties, so every meal that includes spices can become an experience in enhancing health and well-being. Ayurveda, the ancient system of healing from India, has been singing the praises of spices as "wonder foods" for thousands of years. Spices are ingredients in many synergistic ayurvedic herbal formulations, and an ayurvedic expert, when giving you advice, is as likely to recommend specific spices to include in your diet as to suggest herbal supplements for you to take.

Ideal to sauté your spice mix - Original Ayurveda Bio Ghee.

Quick Overview

Amla NaturOrganic spice mixes from Amla Natur

For the strengthening of Agni


Asafoetida should be in every kitchen. Usually it is combined with other spices such as ginger, cardamom and rock salt and is available in powder and paste. It has a strong garlic odor, therefore it is advisable to keep asafoetida in an airtight container.

These mixed herbs are composed especially for Dal and cabbage meals. They reduce its flatulent properties and make the meal more reconciable. The slightly bitter taste of fenugreek will be softened by roasting it in Ghee (clarified butter). When boiled Asafetida looses its severe smell.

Unlike garlic , it does not affect tamasic (dulling) on the senses and the mind. Asafoetida further strengthens Agni (the digestive fire) and calms Vata (air / ether element).

Asafoetida is a resin which requires a base substance in ground form. The combination with Fenugreek is ideal.
