Fenugreek

 Fenugreek Key facts Fenugreek has long been used in the Middle East and across Asia - both leaves and seeds are found in recipes - methi is what to look out for in Asian shops. Seeds were even found in Tutankhamun's tomb.

These are tiny, pale-coloured seeds to which I was introduced when a friend gave me a recipe for Sri Lankan curry.

Fenugreek seeds are used widely in Sri Lanka, as indeed they are in Indian cooking. The flavour is strong, so only a little is needed, and fenugreek is usually used as part of a blend with other spices.
