Kaffir Lime Leaf Powder
I just bought some Kaffir Lime Leaf Powder from an online Thai grocer. It just sounded like something that could be good. Anyone have any ideas for how to use this ingredient?
I bought some of this from a spice seller in France a few months ago. He suggested using it when cooking fish -- but I didn't speak French well enough to get more details on how, exactly, and I haven't tried it yet...
I like to have it on hand when I make a Beef Rendang. (Easier than obtaining fresh kaffir lime leaves.)
In any case, I suggest sprinkling it in towards the end of whatever you are cooking -- eg a Thai curry using a paste -- as it is a delicate flavor.
Here is a non-traditional yet delicious recipe for Beef Rendang:
