Curry leaves: The leaves are widely used to add flavour in the Southern India to make sabzis, curries, rasam and sambhar. Also known as Murraya koenigii, the herb can be effectively used to lose weight. The leaves are a herbal remedy to improve digestion and cleanse the system. This automatically aids weight loss as there are no chances for fats to deposit in the body. You can either mix it with buttermilk or add as a flavouring herb in a curry. Do not throw the leaves from next time.
