The pods of fenugreek, Trigonella foenum-graecum (Leguminoseae), which
grows in Southwest Asia and around the Eastern part of the Mediterranean,
resemble goat's antlers. Consequently they are, according to the Doctrine
of Signatures, regarded as a remedy for impotence, and were included as
such already in the earliest list of Chinese medical plants.
They contain, inter alia, steroidal saponins, which can be hydrolysed to
diosgenin, which, in turn, can be used as a starting material for the
production of som sex hormones.
The roasted pods are eaten as such in many parts of the world, but can
also be used as the starting point for the preparation of various dishes.
According to Leunis one such dish, based on milk, was earlier served in
both India and Egypt to give women a desirable corpulence.
