Kaffir Lime Leaves 20g

Category: ,

With a strong, citrusy, and floral fragrance the flavour is distinctive, with a combination of lemony and slightly bitter notes. The leaves are typically used whole and are not eaten but added to dishes to infuse their aromatic qualities into the food. This aromatic Asian leaf is often used in Thai, Indonesian and Cambodian recipes including Thai green curry.

Kaffir lime leaves are widely used in culinary preparations for their aromatic properties. They are usually added to curries, soups, stir-fries, and marinades. The leaves are often paired with other traditional Southeast Asian ingredients like lemongrass, galangal, and chili peppers to create complex and flavourful dishes. Bring out the taste of your kaffir lime leaves:
  1. Thai Green Curry: Use kaffir lime leaves along with green curry paste, coconut milk, and vegetables or your choice of protein for a classic Thai green curry. The leaves add a distinctive flavour and aroma to the curry.
  2. Tom Yum Soup: Infuse your tom yum soup with the fragrance of kaffir lime leaves. Combine the leaves with lemongrass, galangal, lime juice, fish sauce, and shrimp or chicken for a tangy and aromatic soup.
  3. Stir-Fried Chicken with Basil: Add finely chopped kaffir lime leaves to a stir-fry with chicken, basil, garlic, and chilies. The leaves will lend a citrusy aroma to the dish, balancing the flavours of the other ingredients.
  4. Lemongrass-Kaffir Lime Iced Tea: Brew a refreshing iced tea using lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves. Simmer the leaves with lemongrass, sugar, and water, then strain and chill the mixture. Serve over ice for a cooling beverage with a citrusy twist.
  5. Kaffir Lime Leaf-infused Rice: Steep a few kaffir lime leaves in boiling water for a few minutes, then use that water to cook rice. The leaves will impart their aromatic essence to the rice, giving it a delightful flavour.
Remember, when using kaffir lime leaves, it’s best to remove the central vein before adding them to your dishes, as the vein can be quite tough and fibrous.
