Potent & Powerful — Pure Hing from Tajikistan
Sep 06, 2022
Who doesn’t love the unique hit of smell and flavour from pure Hing? The best way to add some serious punch to your cooking is with hand-pounded Hing from Tajikistan, authentic and unadulterated.
Asafoetida (Hing) is a resin-like gum, extracted from the dried sap of the Ferula plant and then crushed traditionally between heavy stones. The origins of Asafoetida can be traced back to ancient Rome. Despite its foreign origins, the spice is widely used in Indian kitchens for its powerful aroma in dals, sabzis, sambars, and other all-time favourites. It goes by many names across India, namely Hing in Hindi, Ingu in Kannada, Inguva in Telugu, and Perungayam in Tamil.
Hing is mostly available in Indian stores with 30% resin, mixed in with Arabic gum, rice flour or maida. This effectively hurts both the flavour and the benefits of asafoetida. Pure, unadulterated Hing however, is unmistakably superior in every metric there is.
Here's a look at some of the benefits of using Pure Asafoetida:
Stomach and Gut Health:
Hing is a great way to combat stomach disorders and cure gastric problems, bloating, acidity, and constipation. It helps in easing chest congestion and also removes phlegm.
Women suffering from menstrual issues can get relief by adding Hing to their diet. Irregular periods, menstrual pain, and problems like overflow during periods can all be eased with Asafoetida.
This spice helps in smoothing wrinkles on our face. The growth of acne-producing bacteria can be hampered by adding Hing to our diets.
It helps the hair look healthy by restoring its normal pH value. Hing, when added to food can also keep the scalp oil-free.
