    Delicious . I should give 5 star rating here just not only because of taste but it arrived very fresh to my home.nThis was cooked after 2 days and the curry taste was really at its best . I thank delivery boy who delivered the veggies with a smile instead of me making him wait for some time. Really the taste of this Leaf wouldn’t have been so great if you get it outside. I believe this has been grown without any pesticides or fertilizers , which would otherwise won’t taste better.
