Methi (Fenugreek) Seeds
Methi, also known as fenugreek, is a plant that is commonly used as a herb or spice in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine. Methi seeds, in particular, are often used in cooking and have many health benefits.
Methi seeds have a slightly bitter taste and a strong aroma. They are high in fibre, protein, and essential nutrients like iron and magnesium. They are also known for their medicinal properties, such as reducing inflammation, improving digestion, and reducing cholesterol levels.
To use methi seeds in cooking, first, rinse them thoroughly and then soak them in water for several hours or overnight. This helps to reduce their bitterness and improves their flavour. Methi seeds can be used in a variety of dishes, such as curries, stews, and soups, and can also be added to bread and other baked goods.
