Two months back, one of our neighbors knocked our door with some small branches of a curry leaf plant.I was confused seeing her in that state, what prompted her to come our home with this much curry leaves? Before asking she said,"my cousin is staying in a villa in Dubai, and lots of plants are growing around their home, and these curry leaves are from there! You can keep this more than one month if you store in a bottle..........."
WOW! That was true, the curry leaves had a long life, when I kept as she said! It was a real helpful tip, since I usually throw plenty of dried leaves which H brings from vegetable market.Thanks to R for helping.
How to store Curry leaves? Here is the way :-
First, wash the leaves in plenty of water.
( heard very poisonous pesticides have been sprayed on curry leaves, so wash well.)
Wash and keep it in the strainer for some time and allow all the water to be drained well.
Take a clean dry glass jar and store the curry leaf stalks in it.
Keep the lid closed and store in the refrigerator.
