Hulba is a Yemeni tradition used upon their famous dish Salata. If you only have fenugreek seeds on hand like I did you can just grind it yourself in a magic bullet or blender. After you pour the water off you will see the mixture is now gel like but still brown as soon as you blend it will become white as it should. It is important that you do leave the fenugreek to soak in the water for AT LEAST 3 hours.
1 tablespoon ground fenugreek
1 cup water
juice from 1 lemon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1.In a cup add fenugreek and water. Allow to sit at least three hours. Carefully pour remaining water out of cup. In a blender add fenugreek mixture, lemon juice and salt. Blend until white and foamy.
