    Classic recipe

    Pan-Fried Indian Potatoes

    Asafoetida powder, or hing, is a dried and powdered tree resin that's essential in vegetarian Indian cooking. The pungent tan powder's onion-garlic complexity mellows during cooking, and is often used in legume and cauliflower dishes. In this recipe, the powder adds complex flavor to simple pan-fried potatoes.
