Asafoetida is used to add flavour to many Indian vegetarian dishes, it should be used sparingly the taste and aroma when dried is pungent, once cooked the spice changes to have a mild-oniony flavour. The spice works well with fish, grains, red meats, legumes, and most vegetables. Add to curry pastes and powders, pickles, relishes, and chutneys.
