Dear fellow bloggers:
Gives me great pleasure to announce that I would be guest hosting my first event withHerbs & Flowers in my Platter originally started byPJ. Many thanks to her for this wonderful opportunity. My chosen herb is “fenugreek”. Fenugreek is used both as a herb (the leaves) and as a spice (the seed, often called methi). The plant is cultivated worldwide as a semi-arid crop and is a common ingredient in many curries.
Wikipedia also tells me that ” ……recent non-clinical trials have indicated that fenugreek may have potent antiviral properties, having relieved common cold symptoms in a group of volunteers. This may progress to clinical trials in the future. Arthritis has a low incidence rate in India where a lot of fenugreek is consumed. Drinking 1 cup of fenugreek tea per day, made from the leaves, is said to relieve the discomfort of arthritis”
So, to this wonderful event, I would invite vegan / vegetarian dishes from your kitchen using the herb only (fresh / dried formats). As you are aware from the previous events too, a quick recap of how you can send in your entries:
Looking forward to your fullest participation and lip -smacking entries over the next 30 days !
You may also write to me or PJ for any other clarification that you may need.
