If ever you were looking for an excuse to try asafetida, this slaw should be it. Its pungent flavor pairs perfectly with the sweet coconut, spicy jalapeño, and crunchy sesame seeds in this Indian-inspired salad.

Serving Suggestions

Serve warm, at room temperature or cold. The overall flavor improves with age.
