They are popularly referred to as Tej Patta which means 'pungent' or 'malabar' leaf. This herb forms an integral part of Indian cuisine, owing to its distinctive flavor and fragrance. These leaves contain enzymes that were found to break down the proteins thereby aiding in digestive health. They have been found to have antimicrobial compounds which have an inhibitory effect on microorganisms.
