Fenugreek is a very popular ingredient used in different forms. The seeds are used as a spice, the dry leaves are used as a herb and the fresh fenugreek leaves are used as a green veggie.
Fenugreek leaves are known to be a healthy diet for diabetic people.
It’s very easy to grow these greens at home. All you need is fenugreek seeds from your kitchen, container, soil and water. Within days you will have a fresh produce of homegrown methi leaves.
My favorite recipe from these leaves – methi Uppu Huli dosa, methi rice and methi thepla.
