Dungga Mbudi (Bima, Mbojo). Kaffir lime leaves are used as fragrances in cooking. This spiced orange belongs to the Papeda subgenus, different from other types of citrus in the market, so its appearance is easy to recognize. The plant is in the form of a small tree with a height between 2-12 meters. The stems are bent or angular, rather small, and low-branched. The title is irregular. The branches are tight. The branches are prickly, small, and sharp angled. The leaves are oval in shape, blunt ends, and one-stemmed.[1] The leaves are like two strands arranged vertically due to the extreme bending of the edges; thick and smooth surface, slightly coated with wax. Young leaves can be a strong purple color. The fruit is small, usually never more than 2cm in diameter, rounded with bumps and a rough skin surface; thick fruit skin. Propagation is done by seed or by grafting. In the culinary world of Southeast Asia, it is used quite often and the sour taste of the juice is usually used as a neutralizer of the fishy smell of meat or fish to prevent nausea, as in dumplings. Fish that have been cleaned are usually dripped with fruit juice to reduce the fishy aroma. Kaffir lime leaves are also widely used.

As a cooking spice, kaffir lime leaves and fruit are difficult to replace. Lime peel can be used if necessary. The leaves can be dried for future use but only last less than a year. Another way of preservation that is more durable is by freezing. Some fragrances also use kaffir lime oil (obtained from the leaves or skin of the fruit) as a component. The characteristics of the leaf oil are mainly dominated by essential oils (-)-(S)-citronellal (80%), the rest is citronellol (10%), nerol and limonene. Kaffir lime is special because in other oranges the dominating enantiomer is, (+)-(R)-citronellal (also found in lemongrass).

The scientific name used (Citrus hystrix) means "orange hedgehog", referring to the spines on the stem.
