    Fenugreek is native to South Asia and Southeastern Europe but is now cultivated elsewhere, including North and East Africa, China, Greece and Ukraine. Fenugreek is a lesser known spice from the pea family and has many culinary uses.

    Fenugreek seeds are golden with a smooth, angular shape and a hard surface that makes them quite difficult to grind. The flavor of fenugreek is sweet yet bitter with a hint of celery. Fenugreek is commonly used in Indian curries and breads from South Asia and Ethiopia. Fenugreek can be used in pickling to enhance the flavor of meats and vegetables. Use caution until you become familiar with fenugreek as too much can make a dish bitter. Dry roasting these seeds will bring out an aromatic, sweet flavor.

    fenugreek = fenugreek seeds = methi = halba Pronunciation: FEN-you-greek Notes: This adds an earthy flavor to curries, chutneys, and sauces. It's available as seeds or powder, and you can usually find it in Indian and Middle Eastern markets. If it's not available, just leave it out of the recipe.

    Just thought it was funny that is says "If it's not available, just leave it out of the recipe." What great advice. [​IMG]
