About Hing Powder
Hing known as asafoetida in English, a spice comes from the dried sap of the stem and roots of various species of plants in the genus Ferula. The plant grows in high altitude and cold and dry regions. It is very popular in Indian and Persian cooking and has been used since ancient times. Due to its pungent nature, often a pinch of the spice is sufficient for the dish.
Hing works as both a flavor enhancer and an all-encompassing term for flavor itself. This is the main ingredient that gives the Konkani Dalithoy the flavor that one can never forget.
It has an antispasmodic effect on smooth muscles like those found in the intestines and stomach. This makes it useful as a digestive aid and it can also relieve gas and indigestion problems.
