Recipe: Hulbah - Fenugreek Paste

by Habeeb Salloum, Mar 29, 2006 | Destinations: Yemen / Sanaa

Yemenis employ Hulbah flavoured with zhug as a dressing for salads and as a sauce for meats, vegetables and other foods; or as a dip.

Place 2 tablespoons of ground fenugreek in a bowl with 1 1/2 cups water. Allow to stand for at least 2 hours. Drain then, adding a little water at a time, stir until bubbly. Refrigerate and use as needed. Should be used in less than a week.
