Holy Basil is commonly used fresh in cooked recipes. In general, it is added at the last moment, as cooking quickly destroys the flavor. The fresh herb can be kept for a short time in plastic bags in the refrigerator, or for a longer period in the freezer, after being blanched quickly in boiling water. The dried herb also loses most of its flavor, and what little flavor remains tastes very different. Two types are used in Thai cooking,  green and purple red basil. The latter one is more fragrant and spicier. The benefit of holy basil is to dispel gas and helps relieve stomach pain and colic.

Hi J Kemmee,
I do not know who you are come from. I do not know if you know more or less about Thai food. I authorize your posted. So others can see it. Silly thing!

Do not laugh or judge what you do not know it. Food is a never ending learning. Thailand's 64 million people, and the difference in cooking. This is the traditional home cooking. And sometimes we do what we want. It's not for business. My mother is often cook and And I've eaten it for over 30 years.

Hopefully that you will understand.
Thank you for your passing by and comment!
