we made our version for 'hilbe' which is a foamy paste with great fresh taste of kardamon garlic and tomato.
*serves many meals*
200 gr' fenugreek seeds, soaked over night in water
5-6 garlic cloves
juice from one big lemon
koriander leaves, one small mountain
kardamon seeds (about 15), without the green shell, roasted and crushed
to start, strain out the water and mix the fenugreek seeds, the koriander,garlic, kardamon, tomatos cut in half, lemon juice and salt to taste. mash it all up with an electric mixer or food procesor untill you have very smooth and foamy thing. it should be a bit sour, salty and very unique fenugreeky taste...
(it has a very nice way to clean the body - few days after eating, the bitter-sweet smell of the fenugreek comes out with our sweat) - a natural deodorant.
