I was in an ethnic store on a recent trip ( none where I live) & bought a bag of fenugreek on a whim. Now I have no idea what to use it on . Any ideas or tips?

Fenugreek is most often encountered as a component of curry.

There are many countries that have curries in their cuisine. Any one in particular that use it? We have used it in a Persian tajine.

If it's fresh fenugreek leaves, you can stir fry it with cubed potatoes, East Indian style. Just google "Aloo Methi Recipes" online. Very easy to make. East Indians have been eating it as part of their regular diet for ages due to its many health benefits.

evening sun I was introduced to fenugreek long ago.My mother in law taught me how to use fenugreek in Indian cuisine.

Fresh fenugreek leaves:
My favorite ones to use fresh fenugreek leaves (ones removed from stems) is fenugreek parathas
https://www.instructables.com/id/Fen...ha-Flat-Bread/

OR aloo/methi subzi ( potato and fenugreek curry
https://www.vegrecipesofindia.com/al...-methi-recipe/

OR fenugreek with carrots curry dish

OR fenugreek pulao

OR chickpea soup with fenugreek leaves

OR fenugreek pakoras

OR I add in the saag /spinach fenugreek leaves.Quite tasty.

Fenugreek seeds:

I make sometimes tea from fenugreek seeds or add them in some vegetable/meat dishes
https://www.wikihow.com/Make-Fenugreek-Tea

Fenugreek powder I only use to mix with ginger and turmeric powder.All mixed I put it in a jar and every morning I take a tsp of the 3 mix ingredients,add warm water in a glass,mix and drink before breakfast.

Overall fenugreek is a spice/herb I would no longer do without!

Thank you for the recipes, I love Indian foods, so I will try some of those recipes you listed. I got the powder form. I will try the drink too, as I have the other ingredients on hand.

Wait...
Did u get the leaves in a powdered form, or the seeds in a powdered form? Seeds are NOT a replacement for leaves.

Expect to smell of maple syrup when you eat fenugreek. It is a supplement that enhances lactation, so when my daughter was an infant my doctor had me drinking fenugreek tea. The natural side effect is maple scented perspiration. Enjoy.
