Actually what worries me more about this asian/bengali/english bay thing is that it now seems clear that many people are/have been using the English laurel bay. Now perhaps I'm just losing some sensitivity in my taste as I age but the dried English bay taste like cardboard to me, there's just no flavour to extract from them.
The English laurel bay leaf is a staple ingredient in European cooking. As I said before, they have loads of flavour when fresh.
Ive FINALLY found some tej patta!! ;D(where's that dancin smiley?)Yet another erroneously named thing in the curry world. :Bay leaf : NO!!Malabar leaf YES. My quest took me all around Bradford and Blackburn to no avail, only for me aunt to find some in Burnley ;D Whoo hooo!Very very different in flavour. YEARS ive been wanting to go to Bradford, YEARS!what a let down!!!!!!!!Was the same when i went to Southall 25 years ago. "is this it?" i said. Ya cant beat good ole' Tooting
