Fenugreek - Translation?

When I translate the word, it shows up as Bockshornklee, but I don't ever recall seeing that around....if I were to need to ask for fenugreek in the German speaking part, is that what I would ask for?

Go to an Indian shop to buy it. There it is still called Fenugreek

Yes, Indian shops should have them. The name in German is Bockshornklee. Some pharmacies sell them at 10x the price you pay in any Indian shop.

Globus has it in its spice section, but I am not sure how near it is to you.

They have almost everything in Globus but it usually would end in the "Absurd Swiss prices"-Section.

Re: Fenugreek - Translation?

In some Indian stores in Zurich it might be labeled " Methi". It is so distinctive in form and color that I doubt you can miss it. Good luck.

In addition to the seeds, you can also get it fresh (small pungent green leaves) or as dried leaves (Kasoori methi). They both have different uses in the Indian kitchen.
