Not many of us know the benefits of the curry leaves. Yes, being Indian we have seen it in most of our Indian Cuisine and like me, you may have removed this annoying leaf from the food and kept it aside. I hope that after reading this article you will think twice before removing this tiny leaf with immense powers.
These highly aromatic curry leaves are not just limited to culinary use but possess the qualities of herbal tonic.
Using curry leaves with food strengthen the functions of the digestion system. The leaves offer antioxidant support and plenty of Vitamin A, Iron and Calcium. This wonder leaf also helps control diarrhea, morning sickness, diabetes, osteoporosis and kidney disorders. Liberal intake of curry leaves benefits strengthening hair root and also prevents premature greying of hair.
Let’s take advantage of the health benefits of curry leaves and include it in our fried rice, dal, curries, chutneys and many more. Make karivepaaku podi (spiced curry leaf powder) and relish it with hot basmati rice and a dash of ghee. Enjoy good health.
It’s worth noting that the curry powder we get from the stores is not actually powdered curry leaves but a combination of different spices.
