Apart from its use in food for taste and flavor, fenugreek seeds have a wide range of medicinal benefits. Here are the few uses of venthayam seeds, that I have heard from my mom.
Soak few tbsp of fenugreek seeds in water overnight and then grind them into a fine paste. This is will now be a great home made conditioner for our hair.
Also venthayam seeds are great relief to stomach cramps and pains. I always carry these seeds in a Ziploc bag with me during travel, so as to get instant relief from cramps.
