Asafoetida 50g

Asafoetida (60% by weight)

A blend of 60% Asafoetida and 40% ground Fenugreek. We recommend you always check the proportion of Asafoetida from any supplier as some blends contains less than 10% Asafoetida. You do get what you pay for.

Pungent, exotic and excitingly flavoured: asafoetida is a flavour enhancer like no other. It's an essential ingredient in countless Indian and Middle Eastern dishes and traditional remedies. If you love curries, spicy food, dahls and lentil-based dishes, fragrant fried foods, pickles and condiments... you certainly won't want to be without this precious spice.

Asafoetida works best when first fried for 5 to 10 seconds in hot oil until its aroma is released, then add to vegetables, lentils etc.

Also known as Hing this powder is pungent and very strong and should be added according to taste.

Ground fenugreek is added to keep the product free flowing.

    Sainsbury's £2.10 /100g ?

    But how much does it cost for the spice Asafoetida?

    Sainsbury's does not show the percentage content of Asafoetida so it's hard to work out. They list the ingredients as Acacia Gum, Rice Flour, Asafoetida and Turmeric Powder. Given it is good practice to list ingredients by the most common first then I wonder why their Asafoetida is not called Acacia Gum? From reading around I believe Sainsbury's contains 10% Asafoetida.

    I Love Zero = £10.00 / 100g. 
    Mix 60% Asafoetida to 40% Fenugreek

    So a quick calculation reveals...,

    Sainsbury's £21.00 /100g of pure Asafoetida

    I Love Zero £16.67 / 100g of pure Asafoetida
