Tulsi, sometimes also known as Indian Chana dal is a perennial herb that has been used for centuries in Ayurveda to treat many forms of illness. Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum), is a woody perennial plant that is native to the regions of India and Nepal but has grown in popularity outside these countries. The name of the herb comes from the turmeric, which is one of its primary ingredients. Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory spice that can be found in a number of foods, including mustard, ginger, garlic, cumin, ginger, and chives. It is very common in Indian cuisine and is used for flavoring Indian curries, stir-fry, and even Indian chicken curry.
Tulsi is highly useful as an herb because it has many medicinal qualities. Among these benefits is the ability to stimulate the immune system, reduce fever and strengthen the heart. The leaves can be used in a number of different recipes such as: To make a delicious curd, use chilled turmeric leaves along with yogurt to create a creamy, cheesy curd. You can also grate basil leaves and use them in a delicious and flavorful pesto sauce.
Cooking with Tulsi leaves is simple and easy, and the leaves are available in many supermarkets or health food stores. To make a tea, you simply need to dry the leaves and add hot water to make a brew. Alternatively, you can use Tulsi tea in the same way you would use Tulsi juice. If you prefer the flavor of tea rather than coffee, try brewing a cup of tea instead.
