Sweet basil belongs to our holy Thulsi family and it has as many health benefits as our native plant. Today Thulsi Vivah is celebrated and I am sharing a fusion dosa recipe using millets and basil. Basil helps to detoxify liver, a great stress buster, helps to maintain sugar levels, fights cancer and has anti bacterial properties. Pesto is made out of basil and is used in many recipes. Pesto sauce is made by grinding basil leaves, some peanuts/almonds/cashews/walnuts, olive oil, little salt, lemon juice, garlic cloves and black pepper together and obtaining thick paste. Garlic is optional. I didn't add. This can be stored in the fridge for a few days and by deep freezing can be stored for a couple of months.
