I love slightly bittery flavor of fresh Fenugreek leaves. When combined with anything bland or starchy like potatoes or eggs, it is even more flavorful. Methi-Aloo or Aloo-Methi however one might say is one such classic dish very commonly made in the northern part of India. Fenugreek is filled with many healing & cleansing properties and is very highly regarded in Ayurveda.
"..Ayurveda recommends shat-rasatmak ahar (food including 6 types of juices). These include madhur (sweet), amla (sour), lavana (salty), tikta (bitter), katu (pungent) and kashay (astringent). If we will deliberately include all the 6 juices our diet, then the diet will be a balanced diet which ultimately will give us long life and good health. Fenugreek contains tikta rasa (bitter juice) which helps in cleaning accumulated ama (toxins in body) thus helping in maintenance of our health..." more here
Hence it is always a very good practice to include fenugreek in any form (leaves or seeds) in our diet.
