So, what is hilla?

Hilla, also known as fenugreek, is an herb commonly used in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine. Its small, golden-brown seeds have a slightly bitter, nutty flavor with a hint of maple syrup sweetness. Hilla is a popular ingredient in spice blends, curries, chutneys, and pickles. It is also believed to have medicinal benefits, including helping to regulate blood sugar levels and improve digestion. When cooked or soaked, hilla becomes soft and releases a warm aroma reminiscent of caramel. Overall, hilla adds a unique depth of flavor to dishes and is a must-have for any adventurous cook looking to expand their culinary horizons.
