One of the most famous spices in the world is curry, it’s not only going to add a distinctive flavor to your foods, it’s also very helpful to your health and extremely nutritious.
For example, curry is a mixture of different spices and plants that are famous for having high amounts of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds that are going to help your body stay healthy and young looking.
However, most people hate curry because of the fenugreek taste and smell!
This is understandable because after all fenugreek is a very smelly ingredient, it’s not only very powerful on your food, but it’s also very powerful on the sweat, it has a very annoying maple syrup aroma that’s not only very powerful, but it’s also very pungent!
Now, I’m going to show you how to decrease the fenugreek taste in your curry easily, however you must be aware that this process is going to decrease also the taste and the aromas of different other spices in your curry preparation.
- The best way for you to decrease the taste of fenugreek in your curry preparations is to add dry mint.
Dry mint is not only very healthy, but it’s also very flavorful and is going to mask the bad taste and horrible aromas of fenugreek very quickly and sometimes completely.
However the thing you must be aware of is that dry mint has a distinctive taste of its own, and as such, you may be very reluctant to using it again.
The second way to get rid of the fenugreek taste in your curry is to use fennel seeds.
Ground fennel seeds are also excellent at getting rid of the distinctive fenugreek smell; however they have a distinctive smell of their own and are also very aromatic, this means that they are also going to reflect on your dishes and on your preparations strongly.
- The third way to get rid of the fenugreek taste is to buy a curry that does not contain fenugreek.
I know that this solution may look too simplistic, but when I want my curry to be free of fenugreek, I simply tell my husband to buy from downtown a curry that does not contain fenugreek, this may look like impossible in your area, but if you’ll ask a nice vendor, he will certainly makes you a curry spice without the fenugreek.
It all depends on the “niceness” of the vendor and the amount you want to buy.
However, even if you apply the two first steps to decrease the fenugreek taste in your curry, you are not going to get rid of the smell from your sweat!
It’s because the smell is so powerful and invasive that even masking it with fennel seeds or dry mint is not very efficient to get rid of it!
If you cannot stand the smell of fenugreek, the best way for you then is to buy a curry that does not contain fenugreek seeds at all. Another way is to simply learn to live with the fenugreek smell, after all it is very nutritious and helpful for your health, you need just to take regular showers!
