Storing curry leaves

Storing curry leaves

Supermarkets don't alway stock curry leaves, so instead of running round trying to find them each time you want to cook with them, I suggest buying a big bunch of fresh leaves and storing them in your freezer. The dried curry leaves you can get in the spice isle of the supermarket really don't add the same flavour to your food, so when you can get fresh ones, do so. This video shows you the best way of storing them and retaining all their flavour.

Anjula Devi

A respected food writer and author, Anjula started cooking with her father at the age of eight. At that time the ingredients for Indian cuisine were not as readily available as they are now and Anjula travelled on the number 207 bus with her father to Shepherd’s Bush Market where they would buy a selection of spices, fresh fish and Indian vegetables. ​​ Utilising her cookery skills and passion for spices, Anjula launched her own business in 2010, Anjula Devi Authentic Indian Food, providing Indian dinner parties and Indian cookery classes. Anjula has created a range of authentic recipes for Manchester United, arguably the biggest football club in the world, where she is a consultant chef. A Brand Ambassador for TRS Foods, the world’s largest Indian food company, Anjula has also launched her own brand, Route 207, inspired by the bus route she used to take to the spice market.
