Curry leaf benefits the body by stimulating digestive enzymes, reducing body heat, relieving kidney pain, controlling Diabetes, making the eyes appear brighter, retaining the natural pigmentation of hair, and so on.

Moreover, curry leaves are used for flavoring in South Indian cuisine. The herb is also used in Sri Lankan and West Coast Indian cooking. These tender, fern-like leaves have a spicy aroma and tangy flavor.
