My holy basil (courtesy of Gay) is now in full bloom. I already tried making tea using its leaves and it was simply rejuvenating, now it's time to try cooking holy basil the way my friend does it!
I used ground pork, lots of garlic, a few Philippine chilies (my Thai chilies are due for harvesting few weeks from now :-D), a cupful of freshly picked holy basil. . .
the finished product!
bits and pieces:
- Holy basil is known as Kraphao in Thai language (best used for cooking!)
- According to Wikipedia, it is Ocimum tenuiflorum
- For the Indians, it is known as Tulsi or Tulasi (an anti-stress remedy)
:-D be prepared with your hankies while preparing this recipe because you will be sneezing all the way . . .
