    Yes Partha Curry leaves or Karveppilai in Tamil we call has become the important ingredient in our daily food preparations and the curry leaves not only add the flavor and aroma , it also brings a good taste to the preparations. It acts like the final decider of your menu taste wise. During death ceremonies or the yearly death ceremonies we are not supposed to use the Mirchi. Instead we use pepper and curry leaves only in all the preparation on that day and all the preparations would be tasting more than wonderful to our taste buds. I like curry leaves and its aroma.

    curryleaves are very common item in the vegetable market. It is available for small value as well volume also in the market. In olden days the curryleaves are given by vegetable vendors for a handful of rice. Nowadays in many shops the curryleaves are given free of cost. Though it is available free of cost, the value of the same is immense. Many of us throwing out the curryleaves while eating the lunch or dinner. For this presently mothers are making powder of curryleaves and adding while cooking to avoid the wasting of them.
    Besides the food value, the curryleaves are good for enriching the hair growth.
