In Response To: fenugreek/methi - how to use it? (Katrina /A /non secretor)
I've made tea from fenugreek seeds...soak about a tsp. of seeds in boiling water...has a sweet, nutty flavor; I don't remember it being bitter.
I've also used the seeds in curry powders...lightly toasting the seeds before grinding enhances the sweetness, and downplays the bitterness.
I've never used the leaves; but are supposedly best if steamed (maybe mix with other greens. The seeds can also be sprouted; again maybe a mix would be best.
The medicinal properties of fenugreek are said to be greatest in the seeds. It is said to be good for congestion, digestive disorders, and lately there has been some focus on using the seeds for diabetes.
Hope that helps.!
