To prepare fenugreek tea using fenugreek seeds, you can follow these simple steps:
Measure around 1 to 2 teaspoons of fenugreek seeds, depending on your taste preferences. You can adjust the quantity based on how strong you want the flavor to be.
Rinse the fenugreek seeds under cold water to remove any dirt or impurities.
In a small saucepan, add 2 cups of water and the rinsed fenugreek seeds. Bring the water to a boil.
Once the water reaches a rolling boil, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 5 to 10 minutes. This allows the seeds to infuse their flavor into the water.
After simmering, remove the saucepan from heat and strain the tea to remove the fenugreek seeds. You can use a fine-mesh strainer or a tea infuser for this purpose.
You can enjoy the fenugreek tea as is, or if desired, you can add a sweetener like honey or a squeeze of lemon to enhance the taste. Adjust the sweetness and acidity according to your preference.
Pour the prepared fenugreek tea into cups or mugs and serve it hot.
