Thai Basil

Thai basil is one of the most fragrant herbs I have known. It is a gorgeous plant with brown flowers.

Uses: I use it ofcourse in Thai noodles, Thai curries, also in my fig butter-Thai basil pizza.

In India we Hindu Jains (believers of Jainism) use this plant branches for holy ceremony known as ‘puja’ in the Jain Hindu Temple (derasar). It is a holy plant for most Hindus and plant is referred as ‘Damro’ or ‘Tulsi’.

Care: Water generously everyday.
