ABC letter C for curry

A pot of Curry Chicken with Saffron Rice cooked  for charity.
For 4 adults

My curry leaf tree produced fragrant leaves. Curry leaves are ingredients for cooking curry and other South East Asian food. Friends came from far and near. It became a communal tree. When I left Singapore for NZ, my downstairs neighbour wanted to own it. I said yes, but my friends should be allowed to pluck from it. 6 years later, I went back to visit. It was a sorry sight. The tree missed his mummy (me) and her green thumb. The neighbour was sheepish when she told me the tree went downhill shortly after I left.



Su-sieee! Mac said...

I hope the neighbor was inspired to do better at maintaining the tree.

For me curry is a taste I had to acquire. It wasn't one that I immediately enjoyed, but I like it now. I didn't realize that the curry was from the leaves, nor had I ever seen the plant. You must have taken really good care of it.
