Also, called Ingu(Kan), Asafoetida( Eng), and often referred to as 'Devil's Shit' by Phirangs due to its strong odor, this is a regular condiment, used by way of seasoning in oil usually along with mustard in most vegetable dishes like curry, soup, rasam, sambar, chutney and pickle in India.

Usually Bramhins use it everyday in everything excepting probably in their Coffee and sweetmeat. Meat eating households rarely use this, in preference to Garlic.

Hing is, like most other Indian spices and condiments, an ingredient meant to alleviate certain gastrointestinal conditions and an anti-microbial.

Raw hing if placed in the mouth is a terrific indirect anaphrodisiac. It will terrify and chase your partner away, that's how it works.

When used as seasoning it's odor turns into an unbelievably welcome aroma.

Usage

The 3 strongest olfactory stimuli that you can catch from a thousand feet while walking around in old Bangalore localities are:
a. Iyengar bakery's bread baking aroma. It is instantly appetizing.
b. Local coffee works' roasting and grinding plantation brew coffee seeds. You feel like you have had 5 cups of strong filter coffee, just by inhaling that aroma.
3. Aroma of Hing seasoning around a Brahmin's home. It's like an announcement to all in the family that the meals are ready to be served.

Head-going

\As it is written!\

Adverb.
0

Definition

A direct translation of the Tamil phrase "Thalai pora karyam", which means, of course, "head going happening". Surely, if Your head is going (either away from you) or because someone is advancing threateningly with a scythe with intent to sweep your head off (usually an irate husband) then surely this is a matter of urgency. So this phrase is used (in the negative) to calm someone who is stressing about, say, being behind schedule.

Usage

Peekay: Prema, please we should have been there by now. Can you get a move on?
Prema: Ayyo! Please! (In a sibilant quiet voice) I have to wait for the choli from the ironing man. It has to match my new linen saree. It not head-going to be there on time.
Peekay: (in a non-aggressive tone) I really have to be there. I do not think the Nobel Peace Prize committee is going care what color your choli is. I am being given the prize for the coconut initiative in East Africa, and the eyes are on me this time!
Prema: eyes on him, it Simms. Humph.

Perfectly acceptable way of saying 'handkerchief' in India. In fact, if you do say 'handkerchief', you'll probably get puzzled looks from most folks. The convent educated types will understand it, but the local shopkeepers and general junta certainly won't.

What is that you say? You actually want to say 'kerchief' here aa? Ey, you pliss don't try all these stunts da. Simbly everyone will think one coconut fell on your head. Just say hanky. That's all.

Usage

"Why is it I can never find my hanky when I need it? Pah!"
