Fenugreek leaves, also known as Methi ke patte in Hindi, have a distinct flavour, and are known for their nutritional value. Rich in Vitamin K, A, C and calcium, they also contain B-complex vitamins such as folate, riboflavin and pyridoxine. One cup of methi has 13 calories, and can keep you satiated for a long time. Fenugreek leaves are enriched with beta carotene and Vitamin C, which are key for building your immunity. You can pair methi with carrots in a sabji or add it in a veg curry to get the best of nutrition.


Folate found in fenugreek leaves is great for boosting your red blood cell and white blood cell count. It is said that 1 cup of chopped fenugreek leaves gives about 7.57 per cent of required daily intake of iron. This is beneficial for adolescent girls and mothers for blood formation. Fenugreek is rich in diosgenin, which can stimulate milk production in lactating women.
