CURRY LEAVES RICE - EASY AND TASTY ! VERSION I


The Curry tree is a tropical tree which is native to India.  Its leaves are used in many dishes in India and neighboring countries. Often used in curries, the leaves generally go by the name "curry leaves", though they are also translated as "sweet neem leaves" in most Indian languages (as opposed to ordinary neem leaves which are bitter).  The leaves are highly valued as seasoning in south Indian cooking and Sri Lankan cooking.  It is especially used in curries, usually fried along with the chopped onion in the first stage of the preparation.   Although most commonly used in curries, leaves from the curry tree can be used in many other dishes to add flavor.  It is also used as an herb in Ayurvedic medicine.  They are much valued as ant-diabetic, antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory etc. They also contain iron.
