This recipe uses a unique, exotic spice called asafoetida, which is cultivated from the sap of a plant in the fennel and carrot family. Known for its powerful, pungent aroma when raw, this special spice mellows as it cooks, releasing notes of onion, garlic and even a slight hint of white truffle. In addition to its culinary popularity, asafoetida is used in homeopathic medicine.
