Kaffir Lime

The kaffir lime also known as kieffer lime is a type of lime native to Indonesia and Malaysia.

Grated Kaffir lime rind is added to some dishes, while the distinctive leaves are also used as a herb, particularly in Thailand. A spicy tom yum soup would be unthinkable without those leaves. Kaffir lime leaves are very finely shredded and added raw to some salads, or added to cooked food.

Kaffier lime is also popular in indonesian, thai and asian curries, it is also good with soups and stirfrys and is often used with fish, chicken, noodles and rice

The kaffier lime has a clean sharp citrus flavour and aroma. The leaves have a strong fragrance and flavor that can not really be substituted.

The leaves can be used fresh or dried, and can be stored frozen.

The juice and rinds of the kaffir lime are used in traditional Indonesian medicine; for this reason the fruit is sometimes referred to in Indonesia as jeruk obat - literally "medicine citrus". The oil from the rind also has strong insecticidal properties.
