Add the olive oil to a medium-size saucepan, over moderate heat and when hot, add the asafetida. Sauté briefly; add the rosemary, pepper and turmeric and stir briefly.
Add the sour cream, melted butter, salt and water. Whisk it into a smooth sauce and remove from the heat.

Pour the mixture into a casserole dish, sprinkle with paprika, and place in the top of a preheated 325 degree F oven.
