we have blossomed

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 22 October 2014 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

The small curry leaves plant has put forth these beautiful flowers...
we use the leaves for garnishing our dishes. We also make dishes with the leaves as it has great medical properties.

Lovely little flowers.
I love curry leaves but they aren't available here very often.

@ursulakatariina: I dry fry them and powder Ursula..We can bottle this. It's good for tummy ache...have it with yoghurt for an upset tummy.
