Handcrafted Natural Hathras Hing (Asafoetida)
BACK TO BASICS-
Asafoetida- health properties of which far outnumber its' pungent flavor. Adding a pinch of it to your meals, does more magic than anything else can do to your food. A 'non- compounded form' of Hing in its most natural form handcrafted without adding any color, binder etc.
A plant which needs four years to give its yield. YES! Four years! And the harvest of this plant is so difficult that it has been often called the 'Devil's Dung'. Mostly, Hing is adulterated with Maize cob, Chalk dust, Flours or Clay making it cheaper than the 'Original/Natural Hing'. ASAVI's Hing is nothing but the 'Purest Form of Hing' you can have.
