I couldn't find any Fenugreek. I am making eggplant curry.
Just leave it out or use something else?

Thanks!

Fenugreek has a very unusual smell/taste and I can't think of any substitutions. Just leave it out. I'm sure there are lots of other spices in your eggplant curry recipe and it will taste great.

it certainly is unique. I've noticed that my sweat really smells of curry if I've been eating something with fenugreek in a few hours previously.

I guess the nearest thing to it is cumin, so I'd probably just up that a bit.
