Indian Bay Leaves

Loading...

Cinnamomum Tamala - somewhat unknown outside of India, these leaves are actually from a tree closely related to cinnamon!

Used almost exclusively in Northern India, they make an exotic additon to Moghul curries and rice dishes such as korma and biryani. With lovely warming notes similar to cloves and allspice, be sure to crush before cooking to get the maximum flavour from the beautiful olive-green leaves.
