Leaves used to prepare dishes.

We use different types of leaves in our cuisine to prepare dishes

Leaves have flavours each being unique  The turmeric leaves have such flavour that one does not require to add  any other flavour  in the recipe.  The other leaves we use are from the jack fruit, fig,  teak trees and the  banana plant.

That gentle flavour from these leaves adds to the taste of these dishes which are normally sweet.

In the photo you see  jack fruit delight covered in fig tree leaves.

The leaves are ofcourse discarded before eating.

I have been writing for various sites some of which have disappeared.  I have several interests including writing, photography, gardening, reaching out, cooking.  I have a blog which needs a bit of revamping and when I get some time I will go there and do justice.

I love people and have been responsible for getting together several groups such as class mates, seniors, orphaned kids and family

  1. the only leaves I’ve used for food are cabbage leaves. I was once interested in foods stuffed in vine leaves but discovered that even though I had someone give me large grape leaves the dish did not work out like it should have.
