Do you get tired and bored due to the immaculate amount of chopping? Today, the market is flooded with a number of products that can be used to finely chop vegetables. Now, if you are fond of global cuisines (the quintessential Italian, Continental), you must be aware of the aroma and flavour of herbs used. People use freshly chopped herbs, extensively to enhance the overall look and taste of the dish. Adding herbs to the Italian or Continental meal like pasta or spaghetti makes it much more palatable.

In the Italian cuisines, Basil or tulsi leaves are one such popular herb. The basil plant is extremely popular in India and is used for medicinal properties. It is considered holy and is worshipped across the country. The basil plant is extensively used in quick home remedies for cold and cough and is often used as a flavouring agent in some of the desserts as well.
