The effect of partial replacement of wheat flour by different levels (5, 10 and 15%) of Germinated Fenugreek Seed Flour (GFSF) on the physical, chemical and sensory characteristics of cookies were studied. Also, these cookies were evaluated for textural parameters in terms of hardness and compared to control cookies (100% wheat flour). Results revealed that cookies processed from wheat flour supplemented by 10% of GFSF had higher acceptance scores for all sensory attributes than other blend cookies. Replacement of wheat flour with germinated fenugreek seed flour increased the protein, fiber and ash content proportionately to the level of substitution.
