Fenugreek is a slender annual herb of the pea family. It was used by the ancient Egyptians and is mentioned in medical writings in their tombs. The Romans grew it as fodder for their cattles. Historically, the main usage of fenugreek was medicinal rather than as a labour. The botanical name trigonella refers to the angular seeds and foenumgraecum translates as ‘Greek hay’, which explains its use as cattle feeds.

Fenugreek seed pods containten to twenty small, flat, yellow brown, pungent, aromatic seeds. The seeds are about 1/8 inch long, oblong, rhomboidal, with a deep furrow dividing them into two unequal lobes. Fenugreek seeds have a strong aroma and bitter in taste.
