Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is an herb similar to clover.
The seeds taste similar to maple syrup and are used in foods and medicine.
People commonly use fenugreek for diabetes, menstrual cramps, sexual
problems, enlarged prostate, high cholesterol, obesity, etc, but there is no good
scientific evidence to support most of these uses. The seed and powder is used in
many Indian dishes for their nutritional profile and slightly sweet, nutty taste.
