Fenugreek Seeds (Biji Halba)

Biji  halba biasanya digunakan dalam serbuk kari, jeruk, sup dan ramuan rempah ratus masakan India.  Rasanya amat memberi kesan kepada keseluruhan sajian jadi dengan sedikit saja pengubahsuaian iaitu dengan merendang biji halba sebelum digiling dapat menghilangkan rasa pahit hidangan yang menggunakan halba ini. 

Fenugreek seeds are small light brown bitter tasting seeds used in certain curry powders, pickles, soups and Indian spice pastes. They can easily overpower a dish so use in moderation, I find roasting or dry-frying the seeds prior to grinding helps remove some of the bitterness and, when used carefully can give a dish a warm, earthy taste. The seeds can also be tempered whole in hot oil, particularly for Indian fish curries where the fresh or dried leaves are also used. Use a heavy pestle and mortar or robust coffee/spice grinder, as the seeds are particularly hard.
