The powdered form of compounded asafoetida is easy to use and is an essential “tadka” to each dish. The Lumps are dehydrated to create asafoetida powder with the use of sophisticated machinery to avoid the build-up of crystals, providing complete quality assurance.
Laljee Godhoo and Co. was started in 1894 by Shri Laljee Godhoo. At that time the company exclusively dealt in ‘Lumps’ of Hing (Asafoetida) that was prepared manually by hundreds of workers employed by the company. At the time, no sophisticated machinery was used. Goods were prepared by churning products by hand.
