The aromatic leaves of this plant are used to flavor many Indian dishes much like bay leaves, especially in curries with fish or coconut milk. The original Indian word "Kari" refers to the sauce of these piquant dishes, hence the name curry leaf.

Together with South Indian immigrants, curry leaves reached Malaysia, South Africa and Réunion island. An easy to raise plant, that needs full sun, grows to 1-3 feet in containers, minimum temperature 55°, blooms in summer. Use a soil mix consisting of 1 part peat moss to 2 parts loam to 1 part sand or perlite. The soil should be allowed to thoroughly dry between waterings.  The plant should be moved indoors during the winter months except in Southern Florida.
