Asafoetida is a gum from a variety of giant fennel, which naturally has a strong and pungent smell, rather like rotting garlic (as in foetid). Can be used in place of onion or garlic, as it adds a similar depth and savouriness to food. Use very sparingly, in pinches and fry in hot oil to mellow out its flavour.
Its use has long been recommended as a digestive aid when consuming legumes so makes a perfect addition to a dahl or chickpea stew.
