How to Make a Homemade Fenugreek Substitute
I've experimented with different substitutes and created this recipe that will help you achieve a similar flavor using common ingredients found in most kitchens.
Fenugreek Powder Substitute
Substitute for Fenugreek Leaves
- 1 cup mustard greens finely chopped
Best Fenugreek Substitute in Curry
- ½ teaspoon Kasuri methi for every teaspoon of fresh fenugreek leaves
Ground mustard and coriander powder mixture:
Chopped Mustard Greens:
One cup of finely chopped mustard greens can replace one cup of fresh fenugreek leaves in any recipe.
However, mustard leaves are spicier than fenugreek leaves, so you might want to adjust the amount to suit your taste buds.
Dried fenugreek leaves have a more concentrated flavor than fresh ones, so you'll only need half a teaspoon for every teaspoon of fresh fenugreek leaves in your recipes.
Simply crush the dried leaves between your palms and add them to your dish to get that distinctive fenugreek flavor.
- Try toasting the Kasuri Methi lightly in a pan before adding it to your recipes, this will help enhance its flavor and make it more fragrant.
