A combination of lime zest and curry leaves (if you can get curry leaves.) Alternatively, just lime zest will do in a pinch. Depending on the dish, lemongrass may also work.

Agree with Bold Vegan, I also used lime zest.

Depends on how important the correct flavor is to to you. If you are making, for example, a Thai curry, the flavor will not be right with kaffir lime leaves or some kaffir lime zest. I have to disagree with the lime zest suggestion. It does not taste the same at all.
