I love making curry, I was taught by an Indian friend who is no longer around. She had a curry leaf tree, I recently purchased a curry plant which it was obvious to me that theres a big difference. I didn't use the curry plant as a substitute for the curry spice, but adding it to my dish defiantly made a big difference in flavor. But its not as good as the curry leaf tree. This is what my friends recipe called for. So I live in south Texas, the curry plant was easy to find but a curry leaf tree isn't as easily found. Where can I find one? Will it live in this harsh climate? And what is the difference between curry plant and curry leaf tree? Should they both be used in a chicken curry? Thanks for your help!
