Asafoetida or Asafetida

Asafoetida or Asafetida (Ferula asafetida), which is also known as devil's dung, is a member of the parsley family. The plant is native to Iran, Afghanistan, India and Pakistan. A powder is produced from a resin-like exudate from the carrot shaped tap-roots. This powder has a distinctive acrid, somewhat bitter tasting, truffle-like flavor and alliaceous, garlic aroma.

Asafoetida is widely used in Indian and Arabian cuisines for its distinctive flavor and aroma. It is also believed to have digestive and antiflatulence properties. As a result, in India this spice is often used with cooked beans and lentils. Asafetida is an important ingredient in the Indian dish "cheewra" - a mixture of grains, dried fruit and spices. If you like garlic and pungent spices you will enjoy using asafetida in a wide range of dishes. Contains asafoetida and rice or wheat flour.

Why Buy Your Spices at Silver Cloud Estates?

Why buy spices online when they are so readily available at your local store? The answer is quality and price. The spices sold at your local store are often a year or two old. As spices age, they loose much of their flavor. Silver Cloud's spices are always fresh, never old. Our products are also an excellent value. When you need spices, click on Silver Cloud Estates for the freshest products at great prices.
