Asafoetida - hot & spicy

Decreases Kapha & Vata, increases Pitta

Asafoetida (Ferula assa-foetida) belongs to the umbelliferous family of plants. An essential characteristic of this plant is the milky sap contained in its leaves, stems and roots. This hardens in the air. The strong and pungent odour of the resin and the plant is somewhat unpleasant in its natural state. Asafoetida is used in powder form in Ayurvedic cuisine such as in Rasam Masala (a spice blend), various dals and hearty stews. When heated, the powder develops a fine note of leek and the strong unpleasant smell disappears. Asafoetida is also used to treat mental illnesses. Take a look and discover your favourite product.
