  • Product Description
    • Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is a pungent, flavorful seed commonly used to add a pop of flavor to a meal. Fenugreek, also known as methi, is a warming spice that kindles the digestive fire and supports the body’s ability to break down food and maintain a comfortable digestive experience. Fenugreek is especially beneficial for vata-type digestion where there is a tendency for gas or bloating after meals. To release the complex, nutty aroma of fenugreek, dry roast the seeds in a pan before grinding them into a powder, or add them whole into soups, dal, curries, sautéed vegetables, or roasted potatoes. As a women’s tonic, fenugreek nourishes rasa dhatu, supporting the healthy production of breast milk and acting as a rejuvenative to the female reproductive system. Aside from its use as a culinary spice, fenugreek seeds can be steeped as a tea, or sprouted into fresh and flavorful greens.
