Fenugreeks are native to Mediterranean and western Asian region. The seeds are primarily used in cooking as a flavoring agent and also used as a ingredient in spice blends.
Fenugreek seeds are a rich source of trigonelline, lysine and l-tryptophan. The seeds also contain a large amount of saponins and fibers that may account for many of the health benefits of fenugreek. It has been used as a natural home remedy in most of the Asian countries for ages.
Methi chai and Fenugreek green gram curry are most commonly made recipes out of it.
