Makrut lime leaves are indigenous to Southeast Asia. Many of the trees now thrive in Hawaii. The leaves have a unique double shape that looks like two leaves joined end to end. They have a citrus-like, floral aroma that is stronger when fresh. Dried leaves still impart this unique flavor which is essential to tangy curries, salads, and soups of Thailand.
The makrut lime, aside from being a spice, is used as an effective cleanser and a natural deodorizer.
Makrut lime leaves can be used in the same way bay leaves are and removed from the dish before serving or they can be slivered thinly and eaten in stir fries. Dry leaves can be reconstituted by soaking in warm water for 10 minutes.
