A Fragrance from the Teraï

Also called "Kaloupilé", these curry leaves grow naturally in the forests of the Teraï. Its name refers to its fragrant taste reminiscent of Indian curry. It comes from the Murraya koenigii tree whose leaves resemble ferns. Curry leaves are also found in India, Thailand, and Malaysia.

The Timeless Aroma of Indian Cuisine

Curry leaves, derived from Murraya koenigii, are aromatic gems prized in cooking. Originating from South Asia, these shiny, dark green leaves are renowned for their unique, slightly spicy, and bitter flavor. Cultivated in tropical and subtropical regions, they are essential in curries, rice dishes, and soups in Indian cuisine.

Exploring Indian Flavors

Curry leaves have their origins in the Indian subcontinent, where they were initially used for medicinal purposes in Ayurvedic medicine. Their therapeutic virtues made them valuable, but their distinctive aroma and flavor gradually captivated the palates of local gourmets. Over time, these leaves have traveled beyond Indian borders, spreading across Asia through trade and cultural exchanges.
