      I liked this recipe alot. I have never heard of asafetida powder before, but click the link in the recipe - garlic powder is a reasonable substitute. We bought some from the local Asian market. I wasn't thinking and used my jar of minced ginger instead of powder. It didn't mix in very well, and the mix has to be refrigerated, but even so turned out beautifully. I used it with peppers, mushrooms, olives, onion and chicken to make a spicy-flavorful dish which fed me and hubby for two meals. Not sure how much butter 75 grams is, I used 5 tablespoons. The only thing I did not like was that it seemed a little 'dry', not too 'saucy', though this may have just been the length of time I cooked the chicken after following the directions here (about 35 min). I am not sure exactly how to correct this for the next time I use the mix. I think less cooking time, more butter, more water (used to make the paste), or the addition of plain yogurt as I have seen for other recipes - not sure which I will try first. This recipe makes a good amount of mix, so there is plenty left over to experiment with. Thanks for posting!
