Product Description - Starwest Botanicals Organic Fenugreek Seed Bulk 1lb.
Organic Fenugreek Seed
Fenugreek seed in powdered and whole forms, as well as organic and kosher versions. Fenugreek seeds come directly to us from our Egyptian producers, and then we process this and all of our quality dried herbs and spices in house in order to guarantee that they are of premium quality.
Fenugreek seed comes from the herb with the Latin botanical name of Trigonella foenum graecum, which is a member of the Fabaceae plant family, the same one that is the family for legumes, peas and beans. Fenugreek may help to prevent fevers and sooth the stomach.
Organic fenugreek seed has many culinary uses as well. It is one of the primary ingredients found in curry powder, and is also used in pickle recipes.
The spicy seed can be used to flavor chutneys. Chutneys can be made from crushed vegetables or fruits to which seasonings are added, and are a popular condiment in Indian cuisines. Chutneys taste wonderful served over sauteed fish fillets.
Fenugreek may also be used in dressings and sauces. Added to yogurt, it gives a spicy kick to vegetable dishes. A delightful sauce used over baked chicken includes fenugreek as part of a curry blend along with coconut milk.
Vegetable flavor is intensified with the addition of organic fenugreek seed. You can pan fry diced potatoes and then add the ingredients of curry, which can include turmeric, chili powder, mustard, cumin and fenugreek, and let the heat cause the flavor to explode in the whole seed spice.
Fenugreek can also be used to season fish and other types of seafood. Fish can be seasoned with curry powder containing fenugreek or can be placed in marinades that are used to soak the fish prior to cooking. The spice may also be added to spice rubs for meat. Chicken or lamb are delicious when a spice rub including fenugreek is used before roasting or grilling.
