  • Asafoetida

    Asafoetida (Hing) has amazing medicinal properties, especially good for reactions from allergies or insect stings. Someone had such a severe reaction and the face puffed up. When 3 or four small, raw Asafoetida pieces were inserted into small banana pieces and swallowed, it gradually reduced the puffiness and was cured in about 30 minutes. Given its numerous therapeutic and curative powers, this spice is also referred to as the ‘Food of the Gods’.

    By itself, Asafoetida has a strong smell. But when cooked the smell disappears or adds a nice subtle flavor. It is an acquired taste, but worth it.
