You need to keep it in a grecian urn.

also while that seemed sarcastic it was a decent answer, you can make tea with it that is supposedly healthy and not terrible, drizzle of honey and a baby shot of milk and it ain't bad, wife does it some nights

Seed or plant?
Get a squeeze bottle and put the seed in that with some neutral flavored oil. and some annatto seeds if you can find them. It'll make a nice oil to use for Indian cooking or Greek lamb chops with lemon and mint.

I use fenugreek seeds for vindaloo and other masalas.

It's supposed to aid in lactation. So you got that going for you.

^ This.  And if you bought a 1 pound bag, you have close to a lifetime supply.

Are you trying to induce lactation?

I've used it in a curry grind. Not sure what else you can do with it. Maybe google?
 
2019-03-09 07:20:45 PM  
i'd say something with fresh fenugreek, feta cheese, and perhaps grapefruit...plus a last ingredient of your choice, maybe walnuts...and a zesty salad dressing made of oil and vinegar plus a bit of the grapefruit juice.

Curry is the correct answer.

If you like spices and are getting into spices.
get one of these. An Indian Spice Box...  A Masala Dabba.
img.fark.netView Full Size

You can find them cheap at Indian Markets.

Here's how you use them. You store the spices in the small containers around the central container.
Then depending on your mood, the dish, the season you go around with the small spoon and create your own blend in the central container. You then toast that blend briefly and grind it with a mortar and pestle or a spice grinder.
From there you have a spice blend you use for the week for cooking...sometimes adding a bit of this or that as needed.

I've seen Dabbas with glass lids...which I don't like that much because it is a spice storage device.

I couldn't find wolf blood, but the neighbors have a dog that won't stop barking.  Ever.

Likes to gnaw on tires. Chewed holes in a set of good.ones.

He won't be missed.

The ones with the top lid...https://www.amazon.com/Stainles​s-Masal​a-Container-Compartments-Storage/dp/B0​759MN464/ref=asc_df_B0759MN464/?tag=hy​prod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=2257539995​76&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=151416642​33183194252&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvd​ev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9012​489&hvtargid=pla-431035103727&psc=1
That fits below the main lid...
That's where you store long dried peppers and whole cinnamon sticks.
 
2019-03-09 08:53:38 PM  
It's commonly used to masquerade as maple syrup. So, cookies and such? But mostly I use it in curries.

good lord are you just talking about the seeds?

don't make my salad in that case.

I sprout them and use in salads.
 
2019-03-09 10:23:17 PM  
I don't know what fenugreek is.
 
2019-03-09 10:32:32 PM  
Oh, it's powder.  I was going to say salad might be nice with the leaves, but in this case I'm going to have to go with "make the tikka masala and snort whatever is left.

The fresh leaves are good for saag.

If you bought the dried leaves vs the seeds AKA Methi  you can make Butter Chicken

2019-03-10 05:56:25 AM  
In the past I've ground up fenugreek in a coffee grinder and find it really adds something to fried potato dishes.
 
2019-03-10 07:41:02 AM  
Lots of cookies and baked goods can take a little fenugreek. It is the smell they use in artificial maple syrup, so a dash in most recipes will not go awry. I only know because of the aforementioned lactation.

Go get a bag of dried fenugreek leaves.  They are great in basically any kind of Indian dish that calls for dried herbs.  The last thing I used powder for was an Ethiopian berbere spice mix though.

About half. The rest is a combination of EU loans, redistributed wealth, and just printing money like crazy.

Ahhh, I see.  Very nice.

And apologize if I sounded annoyed, I just felt stupid giving an unhelpful recipe without clarifying first.  More fun to blame somebody else.  :P   I have used Fenugreek in curries and stews ... hey check this out, you got me searching

Yeah, fenugreek and black pepper also make a good combo on eggplant.

I agree with the curry suggestions, as well.

Me too. I used it for lactation purposes too.

Fun bonus? Your sweat smells like maple syrup. Go for a light jog? Smell like waffles. Fun.

I used the powder.
