|Curry Leaf curry|
I made this curry last week and it came perfectly..My mum loved it..This is a healthy yet tasty southindian curry dish..Curry leaves are good for your hair and eyes..This dish is so bright in colour which tempts you to eat atonce..The best combo for this dish is Hot steamed rice..This recipe is modified from food.sulekha.com..In the original recipe the curry leaves are deep fried,I avoided that step and just sauted it in little oil till it gets crispy..So hope you all will give this a try and let me know what you think..
