Like we use curry leaves, coriander leaves,mint leaves... for flavour in the food but take it away while eating... but they are very good for our health... Tomatoes.. too...we add in the food... but refuse it while eating... I think the things we refuse in the food have more nutritional values... What's your say?

Sometimes I take away the bay leaves in a sauce or some fresh oregano in a soup.

@Teekaaa The oregano is edible. But sometimes I add a sprig of it to a soup. That, with some celery or parsil I take away for beauty reasons.

Green chillies- I have seen many people eating it.they used to take it with curd rice... but it depends upon ones health.... I too don't eat it... but unknowingly I have eaten it many a times.... Curry leaves- I love it so much....it's good for hair growth .. Thanks for sharing your views... Have a great day.

We use dried laurel or bay leaf especially for a popular Filipino dish called " adobo " but the leaf is not edible after using it.
