The Thulasi plant has always been a quintessential part of life in south India. Traditionally, it always was there right in front of residences and had a reserved spot with its own unique architecture – called the ‘Thulasi Thara’. It was there to greet everyone on their way into or out of the house. This aromatic herb is a beautiful one too; the bluish stems contrasting with its unusual shade of green makes it stand apart! Thulasi has a very significant place amongst many religious practices and in some parts of the world, it is known as Holy Basil.
Dhania is known as Cilantro, the world over. The herb looks very unassuming but is actually a powerful one; loaded with micronutrients and nutritional elements, contains dietary fibre, vitamins and also minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium.
