What is hing?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
"Hing" is another word for "Asafoetida." It's the dried sap from the root of an asafoetida plant, which is an herb.
It also smells really bad! But never fear -- it adds a complex, onion-y, umami taste to curries and other Indian dishes.
