Curry leaves have always been sought after for their unique flavour and usefulness in cooking, but there are also a number of health benefits that make them highly appealing.
The curry tree is a small to medium tree native to India and Sri Lanka but grown in other countries including China, Australia and Nigeria. The useful parts of the tree are its leaves, its roots and its bark.
The bark of the curry leaf tree is used to treat venomous snake bites
The leaves, with their vast herbal properties, are used in various local cuisines across India and other parts of Asia as flavouring agents. Curry leaves resemble ‘neem’ or Indian lilac and their name in most Indian languages translates to ‘sweet neem’
Curry leaves can be dried or fried, depending on the intended use. The fresh form is also very popular, both for cooking and herbal medicines
Curry leaves are valued as seasoning in southern and west-coast Indian cooking and Sri Lankan cooking, usually fried along with chopped onion in the first stage of preparation
Curry leaves are primarily used to add aroma and flavour to dishes, usually in Asian cuisines such as Indian and Sri Lankan. Most cooks add the leaves early on in the preparation, to allow plenty of time for them to break down and infuse the food with their strong, pungent flavour.
