Soak fenugreek seeds in cold water for 12 to 18 hours until a jelly-like coating is evident on seeds. Drain off water.
Place fenugreek in blender jar with garlic and coriander and blend to a coarse puree, adding salt, lemon juice, chili if used and enough cold water to draw ingredients over blades.
Turn into a jar, seal and store in refrigerator. Use as a bread dip or as specified in recipes.
Your Hilbeh (Fenugreek and Coriander Paste) is ready. Bon appetit!
