Curry Leaves in Nashville

I've recently moved to Nashville from Houston and love to cook Indian Food. I've struggled to find curry leaves in Nashville. Can anyone help?

  1. The K&S World Market on Charlotte Pike had them the last time I was there, at the end of January . . . .

      I'll check again- I was there in December and had no luck- thanks!

    2. The Shreeji International Market at the Farmers market has everything you need for Indian cooking

        Been there several times with no luck...

      2. Not sure if you want to tackle it or not, but you can purchase a curry leaf tree. That might be your best bet.

        I'm not sure of the hardiness for your area, but I know of someone who had several in pots inside the house in Philadelphia. So you can go either way...outside or inside.

        Check online. There are a few sources.

        Good luck.

          Thanks Jay. I was thinking about that, although I kill just about everything I try to grow- I just threw away my rosemary Christmas tree yesterday and I'm staring at my Chia (don't laugh) herb garden slowly turn yellow and wither away in my window sill as we speak...

          1. re: heidiallison

            My rosemary christmas tree didn't make it either... but it might be worth a try. Also ... K&S has a location on Nolensville as well as the one on Charlotte, and they don't always have the same things, so if one is missing the curry leaves, the other might have them.

        2. How about the international market at the City Market on Rosa Parks?

          1. I buy them at Apna Bazaar on Nolensville in the strip where Elysian Fields runs into Nolensville. THey're closed Mondays.

              Fantastic! I'll put it on the list...I have a new curry cookbook with many recipes I've been dying to try..
