Hing (Asafétida)

Hing is an extended super species in the Indian kitchen, comes from the resin by the root of a type of giant fennel called asafoetida Splint, for that reason also it is known this species as Asafétida (also escibe “Asafoetida?). The plant grows mainly in Afghanistan and the North of Iran of where resin to India for its processing is exported, is commercialized mainly in dust of yellowish color that consists of the mixture of the resin ground with flour of rice or wheat.
At Roman time much in Europe was also used although nowadays, since you realize, it has disappeared of the European kitchens. From the antiquity their digestive properties are known, is super effective for the elimination of gases and swelling and therefore one of the best species to balance Dressing gown. It has a pungent aroma, the correct thing is to skip hing in hot oil or ghee before using it, but I confess that sometimes it crude use in hummus, seasonings and salsitas or pâté.
It is a good substitute of garlic and the onion for which they do not feel to him or or follows a yóguico lifestyle and it wants to avoid his tamásicos effects in brings back to consciousness. Garlic and the onion increase the passion and the ignorance at a subtle level and in addition shakes the senses. Perhaps for many this it will have neither feet nor head, others have been sensitized the more for the purposes of foods on his physical body and its perception of life, will be necessary to deepen in the aspect not-material of the diet in another article.
I buy it in stores of Indian or specialized food in spices (she is worth the redundancy), if it encuentas and you do not want to prove it, ponte in touch with me: Sara (@) logicielbourse.net

      Regarding to buy spices, in capital Malaga I know that they sell Hing/Asafoetida in the store of species that is near the Market of Atarazanas, I believe that the Clock is called. If you are in the coast, in the stores of international food in Torremolinos and Fuengirola they also sell it and surely something more cheap:
      In Torremolinos you have VISHADE, in Avenue. The Springs Number 7, its telephone is 952050150
      the one of Fuengirola is called FA FA FOODS, in Avenue Ramon and Cajal, 16, its telephone is 952593347 and have Web: http://www.fafafoods.com.
      You will already tell me if these little stores go to you well, is useful to supply of other exotic ingredients and digestive spices to you.

      Nandita, normally skips the asafétida one at the beginning of the preparation of the food. That is to say, you warm up ghee or oil, and are throwing the species. I usually begin with seeds of black mustard, grain cumin and soon asafétida. Well-taken care of Ten that burning fire easily, so it shakes the frying pan or raises it of the fire. Look at prescriptions to you of the Web, almost all takes asafétida!
