Fenugreek is an annual plant that is also known as methi in many places of the world. Fenugreek seeds have a bitter taste, similar to celery, maple syrup or burnt sugar. However, fenugreek develops a far more pleasant taste when cooked. The seeds are the most widely used part of fenugreek, which are usually dried and grounded. In food, fenugreek is often included as an ingredient in spice blends, mostly found in Indian fare, such as curried dishes. It’s also used as a flavouring agent in imitation maple syrup, foods, beverages and tobacco. Fenugreek seeds are commonly a central ingredient for Indian cooking.
