Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is a plant native to Western Asia and the Mediterranean. Fenugreek seeds, also known as methi seeds, are a common ingredient in Asian curries, as well as Eritrean, Ethiopian, Egyptian, Persian and Turkish cuisine.

Archaeologists have discovered cooked fenugreek seeds in Iraq dating back to 4,000 BC! Fenugreek has been celebrated throughout history for its multi purpose uses as both a culinary and medicinal herb.
