Know Your Spices - Kasuri Methi

Kasuri or Kasoori methi are dried fenugreek leaves. They are used in Indian cooking and taste similar to a combination of celery and fennel with a slightly bitter taste. Typically the dried leaves are crumbled and sprinkled over meat and vegetable curries before serving.
The unique taste of dried fenugreek leaves is both delicious and exotic, but you definitely don’t want it to overpower your food. Take some time to experiment and taste your dish as you go along to make sure you wind up with something that you want to eat.
It adds flavour and texture to vegetables, pulses and lentils, parathas and chapatis.
Kasoori Methi originated in a place called Kasoor (now in Pakistan). The climate and soil at Kasoor was favorable for growing a very aromatic variety of the fenugreek plant.
