Finger crushing dried fenugreek leaves
« on: November 08, 2019, 01:54 PM »

I do both, finely crush some in at the start with the other spices and some straight out the packet towards the end. best of both then ;-)

Always rub them between the palms of my hands, and gently roast them (dry-fry them) beforehand if I remember in time ...
