Yes Kadi patta, Murraya koenigii.
Kadi patta. This is the food plant of caterpillars of Mormon butterfly.  I attach a photo of the butterfly which just came out from its chrysallis.
I too have a story to tell. when I came to europe there were very few indian shops and indian restaurants. It took some months, till i discovered an indian shop. I bought a few leaves of Kadi patta and put them in my pocket. Every time when I felt homesick, i used to crush the dry leaves and smell them. They were my best friends in those days.
The leaves are also added to oil and applied to hair for good growth.

The shrubs are having different aroma and considered as different Chemo type. This wild plants are available from neighboring districts of Bangalore.
This plant also grow here in Uttarakhand upto mid hills but the leaves are less aromatic than South Indian plants. Fruits are also edible in addition to leaves which are famous as curry leaves.
Murraya koenigii also occurs in Himachal Pradesh to altitudes of 1200 m asl and at many places forms the major understory in forests. In Himachal it is prized for its 'tooth sticks' that are routinely chewed by local people, especially so in digestive problems. 
Yes, I agree with ... Local people also eat its fruits, though not very commonly.
is there a scientific paper or two that describes in some detail these various "chemo" types of the curry leaves???
I have two in my balcony, one purchased from a local food market has yellowish green leaves and not much flavor, other that had sprung up in an garden grounds where I had left some potted pots to see what comes up. That curry plant has absolutely green leaves and best curry patta flavor. Both soils are the same and both sit next to each other on a sill, get the same westerly sun and food on a regular basis.
Makes me wonder,  this thread makes me wonder more... and hence the question.
this may interest you:

Thanks ... Nice info for recipe in the first link. appreciate it.
and Nari Bhatia I know him and his nursery, in NJ.. I knew him when his nursery was open to people,, . he had been a major (often the only) supplier of all the curry leaf plants we got from mid to late 90s and the millenium decade .. often his traveling nursery was his car trunk, curry patta was of very flat taste... not really the curry patta smell and they flowered and fruited inside houses even when about three feet tall or less. and it was not his dwarf variety... regular that was supposed to have grown to be a full tree!!! different ... He now lists three varieties I see. and am glad if has succeeded..
but in Bengal we get very different plants from different sources and vendors...
that's why i was wondering if anybody had done chemical analysis etc. and published  ...  since many drug companies are now trying to get thyroid effecting neutraceuticals from the leaves. If the strength of the smell/taste relates to strength of the neutraceutical content?

Kindly validate....Murraya koenigii (Rutaceae). Leaves and flowers very much similar to the common curry leaves both in aroma, though less pungent, and appearance.The locals call it "Kadu Karibevu" in Kannada. 'Karibevu" is the common M.koenigii that is cultivated. 'Kadu' means wild..!

Rutaceae Week - Bangalore - RA - Murraya koenigii - Curry Leaf Tree:   Curry Leaf tree is a small or medium sized tree, most famous for its aromatic leaves that provide curry spice. Curry leaves are extensively used in Southern India and Sri Lanka (and are absolutely necessary for the authentic flavour), but are also of some importance in Northern India.  
It is a small tree, growing 4-6 m tall, with a trunk up to 40 cm diameter.  
The leaves are pinnate, with 11-21 leaflets, each leaflet 2-4 cm long and 1-2 cm broad. They are highly aromatic.
The flowers are small white, and fragrant. The small black, shiny berries are edible, but their seeds are poisonous.  
Together with South Indian immigrants, curry leaves reached Malaysia, South Africa and Réunion island. When cooking, the leaves are generally used fresh off of the tree. Outside the Indian sphere of influence, they are rarely found.  
The yellow "curry powder" that is common in Western countries is actually not curry at all, but a mix of spices intended to mimic the true curry flavor. The yellow color comes from turmeric root. 

Complete & great set of pictures. At home, we used to eat the ripe fruit pulp. Never knew the seeds could be poisonous. Asian Koel feast on this fruit and drops the seed. One can see a large number of strewn around under this tree.

Caterpillars: voracious eaters of leaves: Here is a photograph of three caterpillars of a Common Mormon butterfly that has finished almost all the leaves of a exotic orange plant in our 17th floor balcony. In order to pupate into their adult form they need to feed a lot and it is a constant battle for food plants to prevent its leaves from being eaten. This is a well researched subject with both caterpillar and plant trying to outdo each other.
 
During the course of their life cycle caterpillars evolve through a numbers of stages called instars before they go into the pupa stage. In this case a photograph depicts the first stage where the caterpillar looks like a bird dropping. A subterfuge to avoid being eaten. Four more caterpillars are busy demolishing the leaves of our Curry Leaf plant. 
In the Africa savannah studies have shown that Acacia plants are able to increase their level of toxins to prevent herbivores from eating all their leaves.
..., beautiful photos of the caterpillar. Here is a photo of male mormon butterfly, just come out from its chrysallis.

Fruit Trees of Bangalore - RA - Bergera Koenigii - Curry Leaf Tree:  Curry Leaf tree is a small or medium sized tree, most famous for its aromatic leaves that provide curry spice. Curry leaves are extensively used in Southern India and Sri Lanka (and are absolutely necessary for the authentic flavour), but are also of some importance in Northern India.
It is a small tree, growing 4-6 m tall, with a trunk up to 40 cm diameter.
The leaves are pinnate, with 11-21 leaflets, each leaflet 2-4 cm long and 1-2 cm broad. They are highly aromatic.
The flowers are small white, and fragrant. The small black, shiny berries are edible, but their seeds are poisonous.
Together with South Indian immigrants, curry leaves reached Malaysia, South Africa and Réunion island. When cooking, the leaves are generally used fresh off of the tree. Outside the Indian sphere of influence, they are rarely found.
The yellow "curry powder" that is common in Western countries is actually not curry at all, but a mix of spices intended to mimic the true curry flavor. The yellow color comes from turmeric root.

I like to eat the fruits a lot.
