where is your regular sense oh humor? What is fenugreek?

navneetha (author)MimiCarol2017-02-18

Fenugreek is herb most commonly used in Indian recipes. It is called methi. Fenugreek leaves both in dry form and fresh leaves are used in cooking various recipes like dal,parathas,curries. Dry leaves add nice flavour when used as garnish in curries. Even fenugreek seeds are used in preparing pickles and various powders like sambar.Overall fenugreek has many health benefits like it controls blood sugar,aids in digestion,reduces blood cholestrol.

I think most of them are familiar with fenugreek as a common kitchen ingredient that's the reason why i did'nt stress in detail about it.
