Fenugreek is one of those flavours that you can't really substitute. However, I've been cooking Indian for a couple of years now, and I get by fine without it.

There are lots of different curries. Many use fenugreek, and many don't. My favourite one uses garam masala, cumin, coriander and turmeric.
