What is Kaffir Lime Leaf

Kaffir Lime Leaves, also known as Makrut or Bai Makrut, are vibrant green leaves with a haunting citrus perfume. They are one of the most important seasoning ingredients in Thai cuisine; the dishes that feature these fragrant lime leaves range from salads to soups, to curries.

They are the ingredient that blends marvelously with lemongrass and lime juice in Tom Yam to give the soup its wholesome lemony essence.

This Thai spice is used in Thai soups (Tom Kha soup,tom yum soup), Thai tea, Thai red curry paste, Panang curry, and pairs well with coconut milk, lemongrass, cilantro, curry leaves, Thai chili paste, and tamarind paste. It is also one of the most popular Vietnamese spices and Indonesian spices.

 

How to Use Kaffir Lime Leaves

 

Pair kaffir lime leaves with other Thai flavors. In the culinary world, there's a common saying: "What grows together goes together." That means that typically, ingredients from the same region or cuisine will complement each other in a dish. Whether you're creating a dish from scratch or you're just looking for a recipe you could incorporate your lime leaves into, try adding the kaffir lime leaves to dishes including ingredients like galangal,lemongrass, chilies, ginger, shallots, and coriander leaves.

For instance, you might use kaffir lime leaves in authentic Thai dishes such as Make Tom Yum or Tom Kha, panang, rice noodle salad, or Tod Mun, which is a fried fish cake.

 

Try adding kaffir lime leaves to fish and shellfish dishes. Citrus is a natural complement to fish and seafood, so it only makes sense that the kaffir lime leaf would also pair nicely with these foods. For instance, you might toss in a leaf while you're sauteeing shrimp, or you might sprinkle julienned leaves onto a piece of fish before you grill it.

 

Add kaffir lime leaves to add a bright citrus flavor to curry. Thai-style curries often use kaffir lime leaves, so if you've been searching for that elusive flavor that would make your homemade curry taste like your favorite take-out,this might be the trick! Just simmer 1 whole leaf in the dish, then either remove the leaf before you serve the curry or just eat around it.

 

Use the lime leaves to give your rice an extra layer of flavor. When you're simmering rice, add a fresh or dried kaffir lime leaf. The leaf will infuse the rice with tart, herbal notes, which will add extra complexity to any dish.
