Can someone describe the flavor please? I know I've had it in spice mixed like curry, but I've never thought or heard of using it On its own.

The seeds are pungent-ish and bitter. They are used as spices.


The leaves- other than being pungent, they have a flavor that is hard to describe. (And I have been eating fenugreek leaves my entire life).

And the smell from the leaves is fantastic.

I just recently came across a recipe for butter chicken using fenugreek. Think we'll try that next time we make butter chicken.

We've had fenugreek in the cupboard for months but I just used it for the first time yesterday. I did a pork tenderloin in the crock pot with apples, cabbage, leeks, apple cider vinegar, sage, and freshly ground fenugreek seeds and fennel. The fenugreek, as mentioned above, has a sweet, maple-ish aroma and flavor. I absolutely loved the way it made the house smell while it was cooking. I was not aware that there were leaves, too; I'll have to keep an eye out for them!

The availability of fenugreek leaves is very seasonal. You should find them during summer months.
Alternately, you can buy "Kasoori Methi" from Indian grocery stores. It is nothing but dried fenugreek leaves.
