Is this a usual/normal price? I once bought curry leaves, without the stem. They lasted a few days (I didn't expect more.) But I tried freezing the remaining ones, as I recall, but once frozen, they were as tasteless and odorless as they were fresh.
These stemmed currry leaves were tempting (back in October 2011) because they were beautiful. Also they were twice the size of the wee ones I bought previously and used.
Would you just omit curry leaves in 'any' Indian recipe? Or would you just not make the recipe all-together. I'm asking in general terms, because I have no specific recipe that I am referring to.
It's kinda like - to me -- if I didn't have a bay leaf, would I not make the recipe. Or am I mistaken in this.
