limau purut or kafir lime plant

The leaves of this limau purut plant are oblong or egg-shaped, and seemed to be a combination and linking of two leaves, like wings.

The top side of the leaf is dark green and shiny, while the bottom side of the leaf is lighter or yellowish green in color.

The leaf will give a fresh lime (or lemon-like) fragrance when squashed with the fingers. And in traditional Malay dishes, the leaves are added to give the dish the unique taste of lime.

Well, so much for now on the limau purut, the herbal plant with medicinal and health properties, and used by the locals, predominately by the Malays in Malaysia and Indonesia for many purposes.

It is generally used in some recipes of traditional Malay food and dishes, as a cleaning agent for metal parts, as herbal remedies for hair and skin disorders, and many more.Natural memory enhancer
