gray-green leaves that resemble bay leaf, used inflavoring sambols and
fish, vegetable, or meat curries. The Sri Lankansuse curry leaves
fresh, but they can be used dried if fresh leaves arenot available.
The Sinhalese term for the plant is 'karapincha', and ifyou can find
them fresh, they add great depth and flavor to a dish. Theyare not
removed before serving, and they are edible. There is nosubstitute for
curry leaves.From: FIRE & SPICE - THE CUISINE OF SRI LANKA by Heather
