History

Fenugreek is native to southern Europe, the Mediterranean region and Western Asia. It is cultivated from western Europe to China for the aromatic seeds and is still grown for fodder in parts of Europe and northern Africa. It is an indispensable ingredient in Indian curries. In India the seeds are largely employed by the natives, both as spice and medicine, while the fresh plant is consumed as a vegetable. It was used by the Egyptians to make yellow dye, plasters and cataplasms. Seed pastes were used to treat fever, diabetes and stomach complaints. Traditional Chinese herbalists used it for kidney problems and conditions affecting the male reproductive tract. In various areas of North Africa the seeds paste were traditionally eaten by women to gain weight, in combination with sugar and olive oil

Fenugreek Seeds Use
