  6. Both, the leaves and sticks are so difficult to be found at my place. I have been looking out for so long and still haven't seen them. I agree, the leaves are perfect and contains plenty of nutrients. I have never add it into rasam but sure its there, after all both, rasam and the leaves are double nutrients.
