Alexanders leaf makes a great cooked edible green, and there is a vast abundance of it at the moment.

In this Alexanders recipe, I decided to play around with making curry using a korma paste, although I omitted the yoghurt, cream, or coconut milk.

A simple dish, that’s quick to make and would go perfectly as part of an Indian Thali.

Curried Alexanders Leaf Recipe Ingredients

  • 300g raw Alexanders leaf (trimmed of stalks)
  • 350g diced potatoes (cooked)
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 4 cloves of garlic (sliced)
  • 400g tin of chopped tomatoes or fresh tomatoes
  • ½ of a jar of Pataks korma paste

For over fifteen years I have experimented and explored the world of wild plants. Uncovering how our ancestors used plants to nourish and heal themselves.

I’ve spent thousands of hours digging through scientific papers, read hundreds of books. Even gone so far as to be nomadic for over a year. During this time I followed the seasons and plants around the highways and byways of these isles.

I have written this book to help you rediscover our forgotten plant heritage. To learn how to use wild plants as food and medicine. Knowledge that was once common to everyone. Click here to learn more.
