think of asafoetida as fish sauce.........both smell to high heaven but they are so wonderful to the overall taste of the dish (just for your info the "foetida" in asfoetida means "fetid"...........there's a reason but it's so wonderful in Indian dishes like fish sauce is so essential to Thai dishes......your masala rice looks wonderful!!!

Has anyone else noticed how many of the same spices used in Indian cooking are also the same used in Mexican cooking? I love both cuisines. When I finally discovered that, it all made sense.

I'd STILL like to have some ideas of AMOUNTS here. I mean, doesn't anyone besides me realize that there's absolutely NO INFORMATION here? How much asafoetida? Citric Acid? Curry leaves? Seeds - WHAT seeds? HOW MUCH RICE versus HOW MUCH everything else?

Everyone is waxing rhapsodic on how good this looks & sounds, but there's virtually NO INFO here.

I notice that "Michael in Ft. Worth" edited the OP's recipe post - perhaps he was a bit too zealous??

these are just approx based on looking at the picture........until the author gets back to you......but for that amount of rice.......(1 cup regular rice usually yields 3 cups) I'd use 1/2tsp of asafoetida, 1/2 tsp. of coriander seeds (I'd crush mine with a mortar and pestle to release the essential oils, 1 tsp salt, probably two tablespoons of chopped coriander, a few of those leaves (forget their name now). I'd also add some chopped onion and garlic that I had caramelized in another pan..........

as for citric acid (you can use lime or lemon juice-------I'd start with 1-2tsp and taste what's good to you.......by the way the asafoetida is not absolutely necessary if you can't find it..........

Hey Tex, I enjoy your style of cooking. But do you really carmelize onions and garlic together? Overcooked garlic is very bitter to my taste buds. I love garlic, so this is a serious question to me.

No, Michael did not edit out the amounts. Why don't you try PM'ing the OP. Maybe he'll get a notification e-mail? Just a thought.

I did PM Vickie (the OP) this afternoon. Hopefully she'll see it & post the ingredients with their amounts.
