Fenugreek, also known as Greek Hay, is an annual herb with a long history of cultivation and culinary use dating to ancient Greece and Rome. Today, the leaf is primarily used in Indian and Asian cooking, while the whole seed is popular in Mediterranean, Asian, Middle Eastern and African cuisines. As with other aromatic spices, the flavor of fenugreek seed is enhanced when dry roasted or gently toasted in a lightly oiled frying pan.
