Curry leaves (ស្លឹកកត្រូប) are aromatic herbs used for culinary and medicinal purposes. They have a bold nutty flavor and smooth fragrance that is impossible to substitute. Traditionally, Cambodians dry roast fresh curry leaves over an open fire and put them in soups and stir frys for their aroma and flavor. We also use them in our Blue Ginger Roasted Peanut snack. The leaves can also be crushed using a mortar and pestle to release their wonderful fragrance or can be torn into small pieces or kept whole to add at the start of the cooking process. Other uses include herbal tea, flavored cooking oil.
Our leaves are grown in the San Joaquin Valley by Cambodian refugee farmers.
The curry tree can be found in many Southeast Asian countries and India. It also called karuveppilai, karapincha, sweet neem, kadi patta, kari patta, kadhi limbdo, curry vepillai, kari bevu, karivepaku or noroxingho pat among numerous other names, depending on region.
