Add salt as desired. Stir and cook 5 to 10 minutes more. Stir in the tomatoes and curry leaves; cook another 2 to 3 minutes. Serve immediately.

Editor's Note

The curry tree (Murraya koenigii) is a native plant growing wild in sub-tropical forests throughout India and across Southeast Asia from Burma to Malaysia. Bearing no relation to dried curry powder, the tree's highly aromatic leaves are especially prized by South Indian cooks who use them lavishly to season soups and stews. Use only fresh curry leaves since dried leaves quickly lose their flavor. Look for fresh curry leaves in the refrigerated section of Indian grocery stores.
