Fenugreek (Trigonella Foenum Graecum) is an annual herb from the Fabaceae family. Each leaf is made up of a cluster of 3 grooved leaves on an upright stem. The white/lemon coloured flowers grow at the base of the leaf. The oblong seeds are harvested at full maturity by cutting the whole plant, drying and thereafter separating the seed from the plant by thrashing and winnowing. The seeds are used in curries and pastes, bread, for flavouring meats, fish and vegetables, and in infusions and teas. Used traditionally as a tonic and digestive aid. 15 gram pack.
