Curry leaves is our family's favorite herb! It makes the Vadas (spicy doughnuts), and Adai (lentil crepe) taste delicious.

Diya this is indeed a lovely fresh green bunch of curry leaves.. The green looks really cool. The medicinal value of curry leaves are widely known to everyone I am sure. Normally everyone has the habit of throwing away the curry leaves in any dish while eating but Anita and I will never waste a single curry leaf that we come across in our food. In fact we dish out all the curry leaves and put it in our plate to eat it up. Hope to see more from you Diya

As you said Vadai and Adai are incomplete with curry leaves. For me, Curry leaves goes into any dish irrespective of its recipe.
