Fenugreek is an aromatic Mediterranean plant coming from the Middle-East.

It belongs to the pea family and produces slender, long, curved pods that contain flattened brownish coloured seeds.

Fenugreek seeds have a slightly bitter taste that are roasted and ground and used for flavouring curries. The distinct flavour of Fenugreek is readily recognized in many curry powders and pastes.

The seeds are stone-like and very hard and requires use of a special grinder or heavy pestle and mortar.

Fenugreek leaves have a very strong aroma and in India, Turkey and various Arab countries are used either fresh or dried as a culinary vegetable or herb.
