Who’s Padma you might ask?

Padma’s Curry Leaf was inspired by retired school teacher and curry leaf farmer, Bharathi “Bonnie” Rao, who developed her family recipes after immigrating to the United States.  Bonnie worked diligently to recreate her native dishes for her daughter, Padma, but found limited ingredients and spices available to her. What she couldn’t find in her local grocery store, she would grow in her backyard including cilantro, curry leaf, okra, cauliflower and eggplant. As time went on, more ingredients became available in stores, however, she always struggled to find fresh curry leaf.  In an effort to support her hobby and give back to her local Indian community, she began selling her curry leaf to the local markets. Today, Bonnie has a curry leaf business, Perryville Farms, which sells fresh, certified organic curry leaves throughout the United States. 

On the menu, expect some of Bonnie’s family favorites including:

Baked Samosa
