Curry leaves are an important fresh seasoning in Indian and Asian Cooking. Curry leaves are not the same as curry powder which is a blend of dry spices. Curry Leaves are an herb. Curry leaves add a unique fresh citrus aroma and fragrance, with a hint of basil, that is simply irresistable. It is similar to Kaffir Lime Leaves in importance to Thai Cuisine. We also carry dried curry leaves in our store. Cuury leaves are also called Sweet Neem Leaves

Used In :
- Stir fry's.
- Added to lentils
- Added to tomato soups and south Indian sambhars. Use with Ajika Sambhar Spice Blend
- Added to vegetables - use with Ajika Subzi Spice Blend, Malabar Coconut Spice Blend

How To Use: Most South Indian recipes call for an initial spicing method which includes ghee (clarified butter, coconut oil, peanut oil), made hot and then adding whole spices such as cumin seed and mustard seed, turmeric powder, coriander powder, curry leaves, asafetida, fresh ginger and fresh green chilies. The hot ghee draws out their aroma and medicinal properties of curry leaves. The main ingredients— veggies, fish, dal or rice— are added once the aromatics release their fragrance. The dish is then simmered in the spices. For other dishes like lentils, chutney and yogurt or buttermilk the fried curry leaves and popped spices are used as a spice garnish.

1 teaspoon black mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon urad dhal

Dry Cabbage and Coconut - Serves 4
- 1 medium size cabbages, finely shredded
- 2 to 3 tbsp cooking oil
- 1 to 3 dried red chillies, chopped
- 1 tbsp mustard seeds
- 8/9 curry leaves
- 1 cup fresh coconut, grated
- Salt to taste
Heat the oil in a pan. When hot, add the red chillies. As they begin to darken, add the mustard seeds. When the seeds start popping, add the curry leaves and finely shredded cabbage and stir well. Cover and cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally. When all the natural water from cabbage has evaporated and the cabbage is soft, add the salt and fresh coconut, and cook for a couple more minutes. For convenience, desiccated coconut may be used instead of fresh coconut, in which case the desiccated coconut should be added earlier to absorb water from the cabbage. Remove from heat and serve.
This recipe can also be used substituting French beans for cabbage.

Yogurt Rice (Rice mixed with yogurt)
Ingredients for 4 to 6 servings.
1 c. rice cooked
2 1/2 c. water
1 c. yogurt
1 c. Sour cream
salt as per taste
1/2 tsp. mustard seeds
1/2 tsp. urad dhal
10 sliced pieces cucumber
10 sliced pieces tomato
1 Tbsp. oil
10 curry leaves
1 hot green pepper (cut into 2 or 3 pieces)
1/8 tsp. asafoetida powder
1 red pepper (break into 2 or 3 pieces)
1/4 x 1/4 inch fresh ginger
1 tsp. coriander leaves (chopped)
Mix the rice with yogurt, sour cream and salt well. If you make yogurt rice in the morning to eat in the evening, you may use 1 cup of warm milk in the place of Sour cream. In a fry pan, saute mustard seeds and urad dhal in oil. When mustard seeds pop, add curry leaves, asafoetida, chopped green and red pepper, ginger and coriander leaves. When the whole mixture turns into golden color, remove from heat and pour it into the yogurt mixed rice. Mix well and garnish it with tomato and cucumber pieces. In the course of the day, if the yogurt rice gets solidified, add warm water to bring it to the semi-solid consistency. Good to serve this at picnics. Since it does not spoil fast, can be carried to be used as a lunch during short trips, specially in hot summer season.
