Karuvepillai Chutney | Curry Leaves Chutney Recipe | Gluten Free and Vegan Recipe

Karuvepillai Chutney

Hi Supermoms,

Curry Leaves are such an integral part of Indian Cooking. I simply love the flavour curry leaves imparts in every dish that I cook. If I do not get them fresh, I use the dry powdered one

I feel a child like excitement when I see two things - banana leaves and curry leaves. Both remind me of my grandmothers , childhood and tasty food. My paternal grandmother  always used to tell me to chew my curry leaves well . She used to tell the teenage me that my hair would grow long and never turn grey . I think she knew which aspect of curry leaves she needs to highlight  to encourage a teenage girl to eat a bitter leaf . She was such a wise lady. Being the sincere girl that I am , I always do it even till date 😊 and quote my grandmother to my children . And like she said, my locks still remain the same black .
