Holy basil is an aromatic plant in the same family as the more familiar sweet basil, which you can find in pizzas and other cooked food. Holy basil, however, has been cultivated for use in religious and folk medicine settings.
Holy basil is also known as cooking tulasi and Queen of the Herbs. To identify holy basil, look for deeply veined green leaves and pale purple flowers. When eaten, expect a bold peppery taste.
Native to north-central India, the herb has a long cultivation history across Southeast Asia. Today it grows in Australia, the Middle East, and West Africa, with interest gaining in the United States and elsewhere.
