Indian Bay Leaves – Tej Patta
Indian Bay Leaves are also known as Tej Patta. They have a strong aroma and flavour reminiscent of cinnamon, cloves and cassia. Indian Bay leaves are quite large in size, olive green in colour and have 3 veins running the length of the leaf.
Tej Patta or Indian Bay Leaves should not be confused with the more common European bay leaf. These Indian leaves are very different from the European bay leaf and are not a substitute, as their flavour is entirely different.
We suggest to get the most from your dried Indian Bay leaves they should be crushed or torn before adding to a dish. Read more about these leaves here.
