Re: Buying spices online

You know you can get all of them
in big Coop or Migros

Fenugreek = Kreuzkümmel
Ground ginger = Ingwer gemahlen
Coriander seeds= Korianderkörner ganz

But I also order online , https://sultan-gewuerze.ch/

Usually I buy his wares on markets, but sadly not last year. He's recommendable!!

Fenugreek is NOT Kreuzkümmel

Kreuzkümmel is cumin.

Fenugreek is Bockshornklee in German I think. (Not sure if that’s the correct spelling)

Re: Buying spices online

Much better go to your local Indian shop. There’s bound to be one reasonably near you and they’ll appreciate your support.

They’ll be a lot cheaper than Migros as well.

Just to complete the story, Kümmel is Caraway seed.

Fenugreek is something completely different.

Yep. Kümmel = Caraway seed.

Back home they put it in every stew, goulash, vegetables, bread, buns and even simple boiled potatoes. It must have some magic powers or something. Apparently supports digestive health.

I am not so successful with it here at meal times, it gets pulled out on a side of the plates. I remember kids at home poking it out of bread and goulash, too.

I have terrible memories of being fed seed cake at my elderly aunt’s house.
It was an abomination, a lovely cake ruined by the addition of copious amounts of caraway seeds.

They are definitely an acquired taste and it’s not one I have chosen to acquire.

Gewürzhüsli has also many spices, like Fenugreek seeds:
https://www.gwuerzhuesli.ch/de/bockshornklee-samen.html

Many Indian, Pakistani, etc. ethinic. stores will have the TRS Brand. If you need a lot this is the cheapest option. Some of those shops have an online store. Like this one, or just visit your most local one:
Fenugreek/Methi/Bockshornklee: https://www.cnpmarket.ch/spices-blen...-300g-trs.html
Ginger powder: https://www.cnpmarket.ch/spices-blen...-100g-trs.html
Coriander seeds: https://www.cnpmarket.ch/spices-blen...-250g-trs.html
