yes, I know !
I buy it from the Asian/India mart.
decades later? that other word is
still too hard for me !
I cook with it now. (the hing powder)
It still smells so bad, that I keep it
in a double zip lock bag
- pushed to the back of my cupboards.
(in a tin canister) never to get tipped over.(spill)
- it's great for helping digest
long cooking beans, cabbage,
& good in curries.
(just a pinch of hing, fried first in the cooking oil,
add other spices too, to wakes them up &
it mellows the aroma of hing)
I never would've imagined, that I'd one day
be cooking with it (ayurveda) but I do
It smells so foul & overwhelming when
raw & uncooked.
