Sharing the first and the “easiest” way of consuming fenugreek seeds to manage diabetes, the expert said, “Take a spoon full of these seeds and soak them in water overnight. Next morning, boil and consume this water.” If possible, swallow the seeds, she added. Consuming the seeds this way is beneficial for those with insulin resistance, PCOS, and diabetes.

The second way is to germinate the seeds. “You can add the germinated seeds to your parathas, sandwiches, salads etc,” she added.

You can also consume fenugreek seeds in the powdered form. “Take equal quantities of fenugreek seeds, jamun seeds and bitter gourd seeds. Dry and mix them before blending to make a powder. Consume 1 spoon of this powder every morning on an empty stomach,” she suggested.
