Fenugreek Seeds

A plant belonging to the Fabaceae family, fenugreek leaves are used as a herb and the seeds as a spice. India is the largest fenugreek producer in the world.

Fenugreek seeds are hard, stony, yellowish brown and angular. They have a warm and penetrating aroma, which becomes more pronounced on roasting. Fenugreek leaves a strong bitter aftertaste.

It is commonly encountered in global cuisine, in preparations ranging from pickles to maple syrup.

Fenugreek seeds are widely used as a galactagogue or milk producing agent by nursing mothers to increase breast milk supply. Fenugreek has medicinal value in fighting diabetes and cholesterol problems.

Ground fenugreek that comes to you from Grover is sown on specially prepared soil. Though the plant is resistant to most infestations, it prefers full sun and fertile, well-drained and alkaline soil. It sprouts in three days, flowers in four months and the seeds are harvested about five months after sowing.

The whole plant is uprooted and allowed to dry. The seeds are threshed out and dried separately for a longer time.
