Kaffir Lime Leaves
Kaffir lime, or or Citrus hystrix, is also known as Indonesian lime, wild lime or by its Thai name – makrut lime. Like bay leaves, whole Kaffir leaves are generally removed from the dish prior to serving. If you are going to leave them in a dish you should shred them very, very thin or grind them. The longer they are in a dish the more flavor they provide. The leaves have a strong, floral and pungent aroma with hints of both lemon and lime. The flavor is somewhat gentle yet bold and tends to stick around for a while.
