DIRECTIONS

  • Place the fenugreek powder in a large bowl. Pour plenty of boiling water over the powder & stir. Using lots of water helps take away some of the bitterness of the fenugreek. Leave to stand for at least 5 hours or overnight if possible.
  • Carefully pour the water off, to reveal surprising mound of fenugreek jelly.
  • Place the garlic, tomato, tomato puree, caraway seeds, cardamom seeds, chilli flakes & salt in a blender & process until very smooth. Taste for seasoning. Add the fenugreek jelly & pulse to mix.
  • Serve as a dip for warm flat bread such as pitta etc.
