Hilbah

Hilbah, also spelled Holbah, is a condiment made from ground fenugreek seeds, and a traditional Yemeni food, now popularized among other cultures as well, especially by Yemenite Jews in Israel, who have introduced it to other ethnic groups. Hilbah greatly expands when added to water, and when whisked in a bowl it takes on a light, frothy texture. It is consumed almost every day domestically in Yemen, and can be eaten by itself or added to Saltah and Fahsa. A dollop of Hilbah is often dished out of the larger batch and added to hot soup.
