Fenugreek, an excellent remedy for lowering cholesterol and blood sugar, treating skin inflammations and good for lactating mothers. Moderation is the keyword to good living. Fenugreek does have a few side effects, if consumed or used irrationally.
Fenugreek seeds and leaves are highly valued in the pharmaceutical industries.
Winters brings fresh, leafy fenugreek to the markets. Inspite of it’s distinctive bitter taste, I love fenugreek. ❤ Usually this is cooked as vegetable, but fresh fenugreek is an outstanding tempering agent. Try seasoning lentils, meat or fish………..result will be finger -licking and unique.
Presenting today is fresh Fenugreek salad, a salad I love ❤ 🙂
Here’s what I did……….
1 cup – freshly chopped fenugreek leaves
1 nos – small onion
1 tsp – sesame seeds
1/4 tsp – red chili powder (optional)
1 1/2 tsp – olive oil /salad oil
salt to taste
Finely chop the onion. In a bowl toss together the chopped onion and fenugreek leaves.
Heat a pan and lightly roast the sesame seeds. With a rolling pin crush them roughly.
Add salt, red chili powder, crushed sesame seeds and olive oil. Toss them all together.
Happy cooking !! 🙂
Cheers !! 😀
I wish we could get fenugreek leaves here in California. I have only had them once ever. I’ll try the Indian market next time I’m in berkeley. Sounds so good and healthy!
