Sprouted Fenugreek Salad

Sprouted_Fenugreek_Salad_1 Fenugreek seeds are very good for health, specially for digestive problems including stomach and mouth ulcers. They are considered as good medicine for diabetic patients. Fenugreek seeds are used as spice and also as herb. Fenugreek is used in beauty treatment also. Other than seeds, its tender leaves are also relished, their sprouts are also used in salads and in curries.

Fenugreek seeds are little bitter in taste. After sprouting the bitterness in fenugreek seeds reduce considerably and they taste little sweet. I add them in fresh salads often. Here is a salad with beautiful fenugreek sprouts.

Fenugreek is known as Vendayam in Tamil and Methi in Hindi.

    I made it by myself and found it excellent. I used mustered oil instead of Olive and Cucumber instead of Carrot. That was fine. It was a hit!
