Curry leaves powder

I have been eyeing on Sailu's 'curry leaves powder' for a long time. When I got fresh curry leaves in Indian store last week ,I made it at once. It tasted soooooooooo great with rice and its going to be a regular dish in my house hereafter. This is my entry for coffee's MBP 'Preserve it' for the month of july( its a bit late and I hope she will accept it.)

I have never tasted or tried this recipe before. Back in India there is a curry leaf tree in my house. Now here in US, I get a very few sprigs of curry leaves for one dollar. I always thought this was expensive ...Any how Iam going to make this powder often, as I like it very much .

I followed sailu's original recipe and it was really good. Check out for the recipe here. Thanks Sailu for the wonderful recipe.
