Fenugreek has a distinctive sweet smell caused by the chemical Sotolon. Cuboid-shaped, yellow- to amber-colored fenugreek seeds are frequently encountered in the cuisines of the Indian Subcontinent, used both whole and powdered in the preparation of pickles, vegetable dishes, daals, and spice mixes such as panch phoron and sambar powder. Used in making curry. Seeds are eaten like sunflower seeds and are often roasted to reduce bitterness and enhance flavor. Fresh fenugreek leaves are an ingredient in some Indian curries. Sprouted seeds and microgreens are used in salads. When sold as a vegetable in India, the young plants are harvested with their roots still attached and sold in small bundles in the markets and bazaars.

Seed is warming to the digestive tract, absorbs toxins, lowers cholesterol level. Research has shown that the seeds can inhibit cancer of the liver, lower blood cholesterol levels and also have an antidiabetic effect. May be used by breast feeding mothers to help stimulate milk production and supply. Do not use if pregnant, can induce uterine contractions.

Tags: Season: Late Summer Fall, Certification: Organic.

Fenugreek is believed to have been brought into cultivation in the Near East. While Zohary and Hopf are uncertain which wild strain of the genus Trigonella gave rise to domesticated fenugreek, charred fenugreek seeds have been recovered from Tell Halal, Iraq, carbon dated to 4000 BC and Bronze Age levels of Lachish and desiccated seeds from the tomb of Tutankhamen. Cato the Elder lists fenugreek with clover and vetch as crops grown to feed cattle during the roman period.
