Centella asiatica

Today wife used the Vallarai kirai.
The Tamil Wikipedia in the explanation of medicinal uses of these leaves tells us that the leaves are to be used fresh, after three or four hours.
Wikipedia article also prescribes the leaf to be eaten raw for medicinal benefits. The articles emphasize that the leaf is good for the brain.
The leaf is also know as Saraswathi leaf.
The vallarai kirai bought at Bengaluru on Sunday was kept in the fridge and used today to make vallarai kirai dhal.
Hope our brain improves to deal better in life!.
