Kaffir lime leaves are aromatic leaves which grow in two pairs of two on the stem. They are added whole to dishes, but not too numerously as they have a strong flavour.

Medicinal

The juice and rinds are used in traditional Indonesian medicine; for this reason the fruit is referred to in Indonesia as jeruk obat ("medicine citrus"). The oil from the rind has strong insecticidal properties. In South India the lime is juiced and the rind is filled with turmeric powder and sea salt and dried under hot Sun. This is used as a accompaniment for "Kanji" when sick.
