Home remedy: Greatness of curry leaf (how to consume it)

Updated on June 12, 2012

Almost all Indian houses have curry leaf plant in their garden. Research shown curry leaves contain vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin B2, vitamin C, calcium and iron. I’m sure you have read so much about the benefit of curry leaves. I use curry leaves in all my cooking for its fragrance and of cause for its greatness. I use the fresh leaves in my cooking. However, I have noticed many people remove the leaf from food when eating. It’s no harm in eating the leaf itself. I have tried eating raw curry leaves every morning. It doesn’t taste bitter, so anyone can try chewing the leaves. The juice in the leaf is able to stimulate digestive enzymes to break down food easily. This is what all of us need. To remove unwanted substance from our body!

Here are some ways to consume curry leaves:


Remove the leaves from the stem to use them (discard the stems).

Use the curry leaves in all you curries and when you stir frying vegetables. Just garnish the curry with the leaves.

Tips: when I stir fry vegetables, I cut the curry leaves into small pieces and fry it together with vegetable. And my family members don’t notice it. LoL! This help them to consume the curry leaves specially children.

Are you frying chicken? Add in curry leaves when marinating. Fry the leaves. It taste good. Trust me! :D

Making chutney:

Mix the leaves with coriander leaves, pudina/mint leaves, parsley and cheese. Blend it all. Spread on bread. Place the chicken slices. Make sandwich.

When making Pesto Sauce or green sauce for spaghetti, chuck the curry leaves when making the sauce.


When you juicing fruit or making any juice, add in around 7-10 leaves and blend it together. I do it when I make milk shakes and fruit juice.

In treating eye disorders:

Juice of fresh curry leaves suffused in the eyes which will make your eyes look bright. It also prevents the early development of cataract.

Digestive Disorders
-take two teaspoons curry leave of juice mixed with a teaspoon of lime juice every morning. It treats morning sickness, nausea due to indigestion.

-Ground curry leaves to a fine paste and mixed with buttermilk, drink on an empty stomach with beneficial results of stomach upsets.


eat ten fresh fully grown curry leaves every morning for three months will help to prevent diabetes due to heredity factors and obesity.

Reducing weight:

Chew a few leaves every day to lose weight.

Hair growth

Add a few curry leaves to your hair oil and boil it for a few minutes. Applying this hair tonic will keep your hair healthy. I use organic coconut oil for my hair. It works good.

Tips: If you don’t like your hair to be oily, massage your hair with the oil (leave it 10-15 minute) before shampooing.

Those you can’t find or grow curry leaves. There is powdered curry leaves sold everywhere. Try using the organic powdered curry leaves.

Good luck in trying. Always remember, you must love your body and taking care of it is essential.
