    HI,
    Since a month we don't have curry leaves in Boston area... it was getting spoiled the day they used to bring it into the market.
    However, it was available last week. Anyways I got used to cook without it last month.
    So nothing to worry.
    When I came here 10yrs back, there was no curry leaves.....

    Regards.

    Curry leaves powder could be a good alternative

    hey,
    thanks for the info...was just wondering why on the past few trips to the grocery store the curry leaves were either not there or they have been very old and almost wilted...
    i guess we have to get used to not having that flavour anymore....
    hope the powder serves as an adequate substitute for the fresh leaves....

    hi malspie
    i guess its been banned because some pest has been found in the curry leaves shipment. hence they have quarantined the shipment and banned further shipments.
    the link in sriha's original post gives more specific details...

    Hi Sriha,

    Thanks for the info. For the past 2 or 3 weeks we can`t get curry leaves here.
    I was wondering what may be the reason. I miss curry leaves very much.
    I prepare green gram dal dosa by adding lot of curry leaves. I miss it.
