Curry leaves - No Stock in Bay Area

Three vital ingredients in Indian Cuisine:

All of the above have very good medicinal properties which are well documented.

Now, all of a sudden there is a shortage of Curry Leaves in the Bay Area. I am not sure why. I didn't read anything about it.

All I hear in the Indian stores is

'Sorry , Out of Stock'

Does anyone know what is going on ?

Over two decades ago, customers at the Indian grocery stores around the Bay Area fretted over the capricious nature of ethnic must-haves. “You want curry leaves, madam? Sorry, it’s now banned.” (The ban would lift a few hours later, as soon as the food inspector was nowhere in the vicinity.)

They said the production in the local places have some problems now. I sure hope it is available soon.

Thanks for the comment on my blog NV. Infact, I think you suggested I sing 'Kanda naal' when you commented on one of my earlier posts! Well-- better late than never to fufill a request I suppose ;-)

I am told that marijuana is smuggled into the country with curry leaves and hence a ban on our key ingredient. Anyway this is the story the India store owner in Cleveland sticks to!
