Fenugreek seeds are the ripe fruit obtained from the small fenugreek plant and are a member of the legume family. The finely milled ground version of the seed has a stronger flavour than the seed as a whole. Their subtle bitter taste lends them for use most extensively in Indian curries but also in savoury sauces and vegetable dishes in Mediterranean cuisine.
