Use bay leaves in:
  1. Soups and stews: Bay leaves are frequently added to soups, stews, and broths to infuse them with their aromatic flavors. They can be added whole during cooking and removed before serving.
  2. Sauces and marinades: Bay leaves can be used in sauces, such as tomato-based sauces, to add depth and complexity. They can also be added to marinades for meats, enhancing the flavours as they soak.
  3. Rice and grains: When cooking rice, pilafs, or other grains, adding a couple of bay leaves to the pot can impart a subtle, earthy flavor.
  4. Braised dishes: Bay leaves are often included in slow-cooked braised dishes like pot roasts, stews, and curries to infuse the dish with their fragrance during the long cooking process.
Bring out the taste of  bay leaves:
  1. Classic Beef Stew: Simmer chunks of beef, carrots, potatoes, and onions in a flavourful broth with bay leaves for a comforting and hearty stew.
  2. Tomato Sauce: Add a couple of bay leaves to your homemade tomato sauce while it simmers to enhance its flavour. Remember to remove the leaves before serving.
  3. Chicken Biryani: When cooking a fragrant biryani rice dish, layer bay leaves along with other aromatic spices like cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves for an aromatic explosion.
  4. Lentil Soup: Add a bay leaf to your lentil soup as it simmers to impart a subtle herbal note that complements the earthy lentils.
  Remember to remove bay leaves before serving, as they can be tough and unpleasant to eat.
