    Asafetida/asafoetida anyone?

    [Mod.edit: posts moved to form new topic (MG)] I laugh everytime I see asafoetida. In my warped mind, it always translates as "fetid ass", LOL :laugh:

    Recipe Chana Tarka Dal

    The glorious yellow colour of chana dal is enhanced by adding turmeric. This comforting vegan dish is perfect served with rice or flatbread. In India, chana dal is often served with more of a soup like consistency and is usually cooked in a pressure cooker. Here I’ve opted for a thicker...

    Have you ever used asafoetida in Indian cooking?

    I came across this spice only recently, when I found a recipe online for spicy squash. You use just a little pinch of it, and you fry it off at the beginning of the recipe. It did add a very particular onion-y/garlic-y flavor - as neither garlic nor onions were included in this particular...

    Recipe Vegan Indian Curry
