- Ferula Assa—Foetida
Asafoetida is an oleogum resin obtained from the living rhizomes and roots of Ferula assa-foetida, a giant relative of fennel. When used in minute quantities it enhances and blends the flavors of other spices, and imparts a delicate, onion-like flavor.
Asafoetida is widely used to add an onion-like flavor to cooked foods. Iranian and Indian cooks (especially in the south and west) prize asafoetida, and it's particularly relied upon in the Jain and Brahim castes, where onion and garlic are forbidden. Try asafoetida (sparingly) in any vegetarian soups, pickles, or fish dishes. It's also good with grains and lentils. Use it to enhance other flavors, or as a replacement for garlic and onions.
