OVERVIEW:

The curry tree is closely related to citrus trees such as grapefruit and orange and its leaves are very aromatic. Its leaf should not be confused with the various curry seasoning blends that are available. The curry leaves are much like bay leaves with a powerful, spicy and strong smoky flavor with citrus undertones. You can add the leaves to hot oil in the early stages of cooking to release its unique flavor. Curry Leaves are popular in many Indian dishes.

 

Curry leaves are loaded with anti-oxidants and have nutrients like vitamins A, B, C, amino acids, calcium, fiber, protein, phosphorous and iron. This supports many health benefits including diabetes, high blood pressure, and weight loss. The leaf used properly is also known to promote healthy hair by boosting the restoration process of your scalp.
