An Ayurvedic staple, Asafoetida (asa-fe-tida) is traditionally used to treat digestive issues and reduce flatulence. It is also a favoured substitute for onions and garlic.
Asafoetida is the resinous gum extracted from a type of giant fennel plant. The resin as it dries and ages turns reddish brown. Then the potent resin is ground into a powder, and mixed with chickpea flour.
Asafoetida is a very pungent, almost sulphuric smelling spice but quickly dissipates during cooking. It adds depth of flavour to both vegetable and legume dishes.

Did you know fennel seeds which are hand picked or comb harvested are of a superior quality than those which are harvested with a straw?
Fennel is native to Southern Europe and grown extensively all over Europe, Middle-Eastern, China, India, and Turkey. This herbaceous plant grows up to 2 meters (about 6 feet) in height with deep green feathery (lacy) leaves and golden yellow flowers. The seeds, which appear similar to anise seeds, feature oblong or curved like comma shape, about 3-4 mm long, light brown colour and fine stripes over their surface. Fennel seeds are harvested when the seed heads turn brown but should still retain a tinge of green.
