Curryleaves Rice (Kariveppillai Saadham)

I just love anything as rose, when Sweatha of Tasty curry leaf announced for Food in Colours event for this month as favourite colour theme, i dont want to come back with pink dishes, which i have hosted few months back as FIC-Pink, a fabulous event with huge success..After rose, my favourite goes to green colour, which is the colour of nature, its symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness and fertiliy, green has great healing power and its the most restful colour for human eye, which improves the vision..Dark green is associated with ambition, greed and jealousy while yellow green to sickness, cowardice, olive green is the traditional colour of peace..I love this pleasant colour and obviously my all green dishes of this month goes to FIC-Favourite guest hosted by Sweath, event started by Sunshinemom..Coming to this curry leaves rice, this is one of the most aromatic rice i prepare usually once i bought fresh curry leaves here..i can even say its one of our family's favourite..Curry leaves have loads of healthy stuffs and very much helpful for stimulating hair growth also its control diabetes if they are consumed continously for few months...to know more about curry leaves do check Mahima's Beyond Cooking blog where she talk about curry leaves and their health benefits..
