Recipe: Coconut rice with peanut butter and curry plant

Rice recipes with aromatic herbs
July 12, 2009

Curry PlantI buyed Helichrysum italicum because I liked the flavour of its leaves... but I couldn't understand what it was like. Then I found out that the english name is curry plant and then I realized that it was exactly that kind of aroma.
Helichrysum italicum it's not the curry tree for the indian dishes, but the smell is really similar.
Curry plant is edible, leaves can be used cooked or raw, or added to herbal mixtures like the Asian aromatic mixture . Flowers are an ingredient for herbal teas.

I added some curry plant leaves to an indonesian recipe that my partner loves.
