About the product
Fenugreek or Methi leaves are a commonly used herb, particularly in North Indian cooking. Indigenous to Southern Europe North West India, it also goes by the name of Greek Hay or Greek Clover. It’s a legume related to the garden pea with the dried methi leaves imparting a smoky, earthy and slightly bitter flavour. Best added towards the end of the cooking process to make the most of its flavour. Full of beneficial trace minerals and high in iron, this herb is a fantastic alternative to spinach. Indeed, the Rajasthani’s cook a delicious Methi leaf curry, simply with a little onion, chilli and ghee. One of its main constituent compounds, sotolon is responsible for its ‘curry’ fragrance and sweetness.
