CURRY LEAVES do not taste like curry! They are leaves from a tropical evergreen tree called Curry trees. These trees are native to India and Ceylon. They are a member of the citrus family, so It is no surprise that they have a slight citrus, lemongrass flavour.
SUGGESTED USES: CURRY LEAVES are used in curry blends in southern India the way bay leaves are used in northern India. If you can find fresh leaves then we recommend that you use fresh, however dried can be used as a substitute.
