Makrut (Kaffir) lime leaves are widely used in Cambodian cooking. They are an essential ingredient in "Kroeung" and a must have garnish for Cambodian favorites such as Amok and Prahok Ktis. In traditional Cambodian chicken and lime soup (Sgow Chrouk Moan) the leaves are used whole and removed from the broth before serving. Their rich and pungent characteristics bring out the distinctive flavor and fragrance that Cambodian cuisine is known for.
- 1 teaspoon Makrut lime powder is roughly equivalent to 1 tablespoon of fresh minced Makrut lime leaves, or 3 whole medium leaves
- Grown organically in California
- Packaged in a standard size, reusable glass spice jar with shaker fitment.
Use Makrut lime leaf powder when you want the flavor of Makrut leaves in your dish, but not bite onto pieces of it.
