Trigonella foenum-graecum Fenugreek is one ancient herb. It was cultivated by the Assyrians and its seeds were found in Tutankhamun’s tomb. It was also used in early times as horse fodder. Recently science has been looking at the compounds in the seeds for its anticancer potential. In the kitchen today the leaves, which have a high vitamin, mineral and iron content, are cooked as vegetables, mainly in India. Dried leaves, either whole or ground, are called kasuri methi, and they’re a good substitute for fresh. They may be used as a flavoring and condiment in northern African, Ethiopian, Middle Eastern, Egyptian and Indian cuisine.
