Curry Leaves

By Pjkiruthika

       Any South Indian Cuisine is incomplete without curry leaves. The final garnishing of cooked food is done by adding oil, followed by mustard seeds. After it splutters, curry leaves (chopped onions optional) is added. This method is followed traditionally.

      I just used to wonder, how our ancestors were so brilliant, that even in cooking they inculcated science!!!

      Adding curry leaves reduces the cholesterol, full of iron, improves eyesight. Our ancestors, neither went for special gyms, nor weight-loss programs or weight-loss drinks, instead the day to day activities they followed made them stay healthy and live longer.
