1. Hing or Asafoetida to Stimulate Digestion
This trademark Indian spice is often used in Indian food for its unique taste and flavour. A dash of hing powder and a sprinkle of powdered rock salt in your buttermilk tastes like heaven and is soothing for your stomach too after a heavy meal.
Saute asafoetida in oil of your choice or ghee in the beginning. Then cook your vegetables or lentils to bring out its flavour and benefits for maximum power.
