Asafoetida is a very popular digestive stimulant, specifically for vata disorders when fried in ghee. Asafoetida is very strong and spicy and should only be used in small amounts, much easier to tolerate when cooked with beans or meat.
Usually avoided by itself or as a tea, due to its potency and strong flavour.
