Combava refers to a citrus fruit with a strong aroma used in Reunion Island cooking. Combava's zest and leaves are used in the preparation of a few Reunionese dishes. Combava looks like lemon; it has the same shape and color as a lime. With a granular peel, it is very bitter. It can be used to add flavor to curries, chutneys, fish dishes and many other dishes, as long as you like its taste. The zest is the part the most commonly used, and as it has a strong flavor, hence it must be used sparingly.
