Uncooked, asafoetida is notorious for its strong, ‘unique’ odor. But fry a little in oil in the early stages of cooking and it is deliciously transformed! Essential to vegetarian Indian cuisine as a way to enhance and deepen the savoriness, it has a smooth onion-like flavor when cooked, despite no botanical relation. Use along side onions and garlic, or as a flavorful and savory allium substitute.
