Curry Leaf Tree – Flavorful Leaves!
Okay, first off – you can’t make curry powder from this plant; that a different spice completely! Curry leaves are used in many Indian, Thai, and Asian curry, soup, and stew recipes. The leaves have a fragrant, anise-citrus flavor. Pick the leaves, saute them in olive oil, and you’ve got a fabulous dish in the making. Often used for making spicy chutneys. Always use the leaves fresh. The curry leaf plants enjoy warm climates, but adapts easily to growing in a pot in colder climates. Harvest year round. Outside Zones 9-10.
