GNP nature walk 11: Clausena dentata (Kaatu karuveppalai)

The park was full of kaatu karuveppalia - clausena dentata. The leaves were bigger than its namesake the karuveppalia (curry leaves) that is used so often in south indian cooking. I tore off a small portion of one leaf and smelt it - very citrus like.

The kaatu elimbchai (jungle lemon) and kaatu narthangai (jungle citron) were also aplenty. I did not get pictures though.
