Asaphoetida resin?

BratleFoodie | Feb 28, 2010 12:02 PM

Hi all,

Not sure if this is the right Chowhound forum to post in - apologies if it isn't!

Anyway, I am going nuts trying to find asaphoetida resin NOT powder. Every time I do a web search I end up at an Indian wholesale place in India, and then there was the place somewhere that was using the stuff for "Magicks" and selling black candles and well I want to avoid getting on their emailing list! It's been compounded powder the whole time.

Is there a store in Manhattan that actually sells the resin? I've checked out Kalustyans without luck. I keep hearing that the resin really is so much better in food, and I love the powder enough to make me want the resin!

Many thanks for your help in advance.
