Homemade Asafoetida Recipe – How to Make Hing at Home with step wise pictures,
This homemade version of asafoetida is so much stronger and it has much more aroma than regular store bought powdered ones. This is easy to make and is much healthier.
I always find that store bought asafoetida powder is not as strong. Its aroma and flavour gets reduced as it stays on the pantry shelf. Homemade asafoetida powder is easy to make and its flavour is so good. Once you start using this, then you will never go back to store bought ones.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
