Product Description

Fenugreek seeds is an indispensable ingredient in many Indian curries. The spice itself has the distinct aroma you might recall from your favorite curry dish.

Fenugreek is a small yellow-brown seed belonging to the fabaceae family. It is unsurprisingly native to the Indian subcontinent, particularly the sub-Himalayan plains. It has spread to be grown all over in southern Europe, parts of Africa and other parts of Asia.

Seeds of Fenugreek are typically dry-roasted to bring out their subtle flavors, having a bittersweet flavor initially.

Health benefits

Fenugreek seeds are a source of soluble fiber as well as containing various other vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. Non-starch polysaccharides are the main fiber source in fenugreek seeds and are known to help digestion and relieve constipation.

Fenugreek seeds contain high amounts of beneficial minerals, such as calcium, iron, copper, potassium, selenium, zinc, manganese, and magnesium. They also contain vitamins A, C, and several B-complex vitamins.

How to use fenugreek seeds from Food to Live

Many Indian dishes call for whole spices to better impart the full nuances of flavor, and seeds of fenugreek can easily be ground in a mortar and pestle for the best flavor. You can also sprout them — fenugreek seeds from Food to Live are not only top quality, but also have a high germination rate. In fact, fenugreek seeds are some of the healthiest sprouting seeds.

Seeds of Fenugreek are obviously widely used in curries, but are also used throughout their native regions in a variety of savory dishes. Fenugreek is usually used in small amounts because of its bitter taste. Dry-frying the seeds before pulverizing helps mellow the taste somewhat.

If you’d like to try fenugreek for yourself, Food to Live lets you order them from the comfort and convenience of your own home — no hunting through health food stores. Place your order today!

    My daughter pointed out that eating a good sized pinch of fenugreek sprouts each day makes your perspiration smell like maple syrup. Ha!! It is true.

    Methi/Fenugreek seed appears to work well in lowering glucose levels and counteracting insulin resistance. It should be noted that it does not work uniformly. Some times it works better than other times. Product arrived earlier than expected.

    I don’t EAT this product. I use it in an DIY Aryuvedic Hair Oil I learned to make from CurlyProverbs, a YouTube Vlogger. It works amazingly well and my hair growing back as CP said it would. I don’t love the smell but I don’t hate it either. Also, the price and shipping were great.

    Arrived quickly. I haven’t sprouted these as of yet as I am diabetic type 2 and although they will probably help keep my BS down … I am taking my time to experiment with this.

Sweet Corn Curry

Sweet Corn Curry

An easy vegan curry that highlights the flavor of sweet summer corn. Warming spices, coconut milk, tomato, and a hint of lemon make this sweet corn curry a flavorful and satisfying meal.

Ingredients:

For the spice mix:

  • ¼ tsp cumin seeds
  • ¼ tsp fenugreek seeds
  • 1 and ½ tsp coriander seeds
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika
  • ¾ tsp ancho chili powder
  • ¼ tsp garam masala
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ tsp salt


For the vegan sweet corn curry:

  • ½ tbsp grapeseed oil
  • 1 large white onion finely chopped
  • 2 small green chilis thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ inch of ginger minced
  • spice blend (see above)
  • 3 cups fresh raw sweet corn kernels
  • 2 cups finely chopped fresh tomatoes (about 10 oz.)
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • juice of ½ of a lemon
  • salt to taste
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • cauliflower rice for serving


Instructions:

For the spice blend:
1. Roast the cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, and coriander seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the spices are fragrant and the coriander seeds start to take on a golden color, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat.
2. Transfer the seeds to a grinder along with the rest of the spice mix ingredients, and blend into a fine powder. Set aside.


For the sweet corn curry:

1. Warm the oil in a saucepan or large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onion and a pinch of salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 5-7 minutes.
2. Add the green chili, garlic, and ginger, and stir. Cook for 1 minute more.
3. Add the spice blend and stir. Cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds, then stir in the corn kernels and cook for 2 minutes.
4. Add the tomato and ½ cup of the coconut milk. Bring to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat back down to medium low, and cover the pan. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes are well broken down and the corn is cooked through, 20-30 minutes.
5. Uncover the pan and stir in the lemon juice and remaining coconut milk. Cook for another 2-3 minutes to warm the mixture. Season to taste with plenty of salt. Stir in half of the chopped fresh cilantro, and use the other half for garnishing on top. Serving suggestion: cauliflower rice!

Enjoy!!!
