Fenugreek Seed Organic Spice / Methi

View larger Image

Steenbergs Organic Fenugreek Seeds  are the golden-brown - and relatively hard - seeds that come from the slender annual herb, fenugreek or Trigonella foenum-graecum.  The aroma of organic fenugreek seeds is spicy and sharp, while the flavour is mildy bitter and like eating peas.  Steenbergs fenugreek seeds have a wonderfully pungent aroma and taste, sweet and somewhat bitter, reminiscent of burnt sugar. Use Steenbergs organic fenugreek seed in curries, chutneys and baking, especially of flat breads.


Fenugreek looks similar to alfalfa and other members of the pea family. Fenugreek, Trigonella foenum-graceum, is a small, upright annual herb. The fenugreek plant has light green leaves with three small, oblong leaves. The flowers are yellowish-white and 10-15cm long fruits (4-6 inches) that like other legumes forms a pod with 10-20 seeds, a bit like a miniature broad bean pod. To harvest fenugreek, the whole plants are uprooted and left out to dry in the sun. They are threshed and then the seeds are dried further to around 10% moisture levels. Fenugreek seeds are like small hard pieces of triangular gravel (3-5mm long; up to 0.25 inches long); the fenugreek seeds are golden brown in colour. The aroma is mild and like dried peas, while the flavour is mildly bitter and also pea-like, or perhaps more like those dried broad beans that you can find in Arabic stores. The dried leaves - methi - have a grassy, hay-like aroma with a leguminous taste and mild bitterness. for further information on fenugreek, try Gernot Katzer's Spice pages and Ingredientia.


Fenugreek seeds are good to use in sprouting mixes for adding to salads or chomping as bean sprouts. The seeds are a vital part of curry mixes and at Steenbergs we use them in Steenbergs organic Madras curry powder and Steenbergs organic Fairtrade curry powder, for example. I also like them in seed mixes for sprinkling over flatbreads or through breads. For some fenugreek inspiration, try Allrecipes.
