Let me start this post with a question. How you guys bond yourself with something like fenugreek seeds in your food life? Meaning, does a food with fenugreek as the main ingredient falls in your favorites list? I think, I can read most of your minds who are facing my little space of the internet right now. It’s probably NO. Am I right? I understand, the most under rated taste of the crowd happen to be BITTER, and the fenugreek seed happily owns the crown BITTERNESS in it. Never mind, let’s make this bitter thing little interesting, sweet and palatable like this sprouted fenugreek gojju.
The tiny fenugreek seed is a natural wonder of health which has been embraced in our Indian cooking since ages. To make the seed further healthy, I have sprouted it in this sweet, spicy and sour gojju. So sprouted fenugreek gojju has many sweeteners like dates, raisins and jaggery. The inherited and signature taste of fenugreek seed has been suppressed and you can never even make out the hint of bitterness. I promise.
After the sweeteners, it’s the red chilly powder and mango powder which contribute towards other major tastes like sourness and spice in gojju. So when the sprouted fenugreek gojju comes together as a thick sauce perfection with all the spices, dates and raisins, it’s a total bliss. I loved the chunks of dates and raisins here and there with my dosa. I have a jar full of gojju in refrigerator which I will enjoy with poori, chapati side dish for couple of weeks from now and you can get ready to drive to the nearest grocery store.
