Fenugreek Leaves Details

World Flavors

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 was made into a topical paste and used by the ancient Egyptians to reduce fevers.

These leaves have a much milder flavor than the seeds, tasting somewhat like a blend of fennel and celery. Fenugreek leaves are an important spice in Indian cuisine and can be found in yeast bread called methi naan. Iran traditionally uses the leaves in a thick sauce called ghorme sabzi made from fresh or dried vegetables. Try mashing the leaves and sprinkling them over curries and dry vegetable dishes just before serving for an unforgettable flavor.
