Ferula asafoetida, popularly known as asafoetida, is a dried gum obtained from the tap root of various species of Ferula. It is a perennial herb and is also known as devil’s dung, giant fennel, stinking gum, or hing. True to these names, asafoetida has a strong pungent smell, but adds a subtle flavor to dishes when cooked with other spices. It is native to Afghanistan, and grows in Turkey, Iraq and India. The plant grows to six to seven feet tall and is not harvested until four years old.
