Sequence (#C2a): Img.284/ Imb.285
Here are two photographs of the leaves of a tropical tree used to make a popular food seasoning called "curry." These aromatic leaves are typically about 4 cm long and 1.5 cm wide. According to another old-Indian recipe I had the opportunity to learn, a decoction (tea) from the leaves of this tree improves liver function - see the recipe in item #C8. of the website Healing. This tree is as popular in the gardens of tropical countries as the herb shown in Img.282 (#C1). Thus, no one there should have any difficulty in acquiring about 20 leaves of this tree for making a liver-strengthening decoction (tea).
The appearance of the leaves and fruits of an adult "curry" tree. The tree captured here has already grown to a height of about 5 meters. It is from the leaves of these curry trees that the decoction (tea) described here is made.
Close-up showing the appearance of the leaves of a young "curry" tree about 50 cm high. Such trees are ready to be planted in someone's garden. Their leaves, too, can already be used in the recipe described here. After growing, their leaves look like those shown in Img.284 (#C2a).
