Cooking with Asafoetida: Tomato Gravy and Cabbage Koftas
Asafoetida lends itself best to saucy dishes and is often paired with cumin. This is a tomato gravy that takes well to stewing cauliflower and potatoes, but in this case is a last-minute sauce for fried cabbage dumplings. Asafoetida's not the star here, but it's a valuable addition. If you're looking for more South Indian recipes, you can't do much better than the source of this one, Manjula's Kitchen. The site is full of recipes and instructional videos narrated by a woman I wish was around when I was growing up.
