THE CURRY TREE

The Curry tree also known as Sweet Neem Leaf tree is native to India. It is a fast growing small tree with deep roots and scented flowers. Grown in almost all houses with a garden in my country. The leaves are pinnate with 11-21 leaflets and are highly aromatic. Commonly used to provide a flavoring to curries, meat, fish, poultry or coconut milk. It's has healing properties too i.e.: anti-diabetic- antioxidant-antimicrobial-anti inflammatory-hepato-protective-anti hypercholesterolemic.

I love the nice fragant of curry leave. It is nice for curry, and if you happen to fry chicken can put a few leaves in the oil for better taste....
