I am making curry leaves powder for the first time in my life. Thanks to maami! I make only karuveppilai kuzhambu and sometimes chutney/ thogayal (recipe soon). This time I wanted to try for sure. Also maami was always telling since she came here that we can make karuvepillai podi. So I asked her how to make and made it. And I love it!! More over one should eat curry leaves for it’s enormous health benefits.
I have heard from my mom that its super good remedy for hair fall. And I read an interesting and useful fact about this karuvepillai in a book. They had said ‘KARUVEPILLAI = KARU + VEPILLAI’ and these leaves acts like a vepillai to our uterus and if we take these leaves every day, we can get rid of all problems like irregular periods and so on. I used to drink buttermilk with some curry leaves ground and mixed to it and got benefitted myself. It’s too good for us ladies especially!
Transfer to an airtight container and if you want to keep it for a month can keep refrigerated. Mix with sesame oil and hot steamed rice to make karuvepillai sadam. It goes well with Idli / Dosa too!
