    just wondering wouldn’t the methi seeds taste bitter ….. and as for the chewing soft methi seeds part then wouldn’t grinding them a little solve that problem ??..but I know methin seeds are very very good for health ..and if it is not too bitter then i would love to incorporate this into my meals regularly …
