Thai Basil Leaves or other name calls Holy Basil Leaves. We use to put this herb in a Thai spicy curry or fried spicy meat. I have bought this basil leaves from Bangkok when I went back. In Singapore you can find it at the KK market too, but because my mum she planted a lot of Thai’s herb included basil, so she just cut a big bunch and asked me to bring back.
Basil leaves cannot keep to long. When ever I got a lot of this basil leaves. I did a fried with oil and keep it. My method was I washed and pick out the leaves from stem and dried it, pound the garlic, chilli and pepper together and then bring to fried with basil leaves. I put it in the bottle and keep in the fridge. When ever I want to use just scoop 1 tbsp and fried with meat, rice or even spaghettis.
