Curry leaves….the plant!


Newly acquired curry leaf plant.
This guy is now in a pot and is inside the house in an attempt to save it from the cold. Hopefully it will survive.
Anyone who is from Kerala will know how abundant curry leaves are in every household. Neighbors feel free to come and pick the leaves off the plants and sometimes these plants even grow up to be medium sized trees. I lived in Florida for a few years and curry leaves grow quite abundantly over there too…I was recently asked how much is 2 sprigs of curry here it is….if you pluck 2 small stems of the plant each with 8 to 10 leaves, that constitutes 2 sprigs of leaves. Just like the one shown below.
