Fenugreek

Fenugreek seeds are small square-shaped brownish-yellow seeds of an annual plant in the Fabaceae family native to the Mediterranean region, southern Europe, and western Asia. Both the seeds and leaves are edible and are key ingredients in Indian cooking. This spice has a pleasant aroma that smells a lot like maple syrup and imparts a tenuous bitter flavour but can reduce the bitterness by slightly roasting it. Fenugreek is a major component in curry powders as it enhances the flavour of food and works well with the strong flavours of other spices. The soaked sprouted fenugreek seeds can be used as a savoury nutritious sprout variety, and it will give a unique sweet flavour when added to salads and other foods. These seeds are diabetes-friendly, as well as a storehouse of various medicinal properties. India is the largest producer and exporter of fenugreek in the world, around 63 % of the total supply.

Additional Information

The clayey fertile soil with an optimum PH value of 6.0 to 7.0 and a frost-free dry climate with 20 to 25°C is most appropriate for fenugreek growth and commonly cultivated as a semiarid crop. Fenugreek seeds are ready to harvest when the pods turn yellow, and the seeds can extract from the dried seed pods by threshing. The dried cleaned seeds can be stored in an airtight container away from the sunlight. Owing to the high fibre, protein, and gum factor, fenugreek brings into play as a food stabilizer and emulsifying agent. The extracts of fenugreek are also used in cosmetics, soaps, imitation maple syrup, tea, and other products.
