Basil, a very flavourful and aroma rich herb. Basil is most known for its culinary uses. Besides, culinary use, it has lots of medicinal benefits too. In most of the Italian cuisine dishes, Basil will be an important ingredient. I have already shared the recipe of Basil Thogayal. 


This week, my friend, went to India for a vacation and she gave her basil pot to me to water it. Also she told me to use the basil leaves as she will back after couple of months only. So, I have used the freshly home grown basil leaves and prepared the chutney. I should call this as organic basil chutney as the basil leaves are fresh from my garden :-) (though I my friend has given it to me :-)). This is one of the simple chutney and it goes well with Idli / Dosa / Uthappam. This recipe is also shared by my friend who gave the basil leaves. She is a great cook. I love her innovations. I dedicate this recipe to her :-)
