I love how things change for me and my passion.. :) this is the second post this month :D ha ha.. Thanking the one above for amplifying my time in abundance.. :) it feels weird to be in Blore and get busy with household chores on a weekday instead of posting a recipe :P But the joy of devoting time to your loved ones is unparalleled and priceless! hmmm.. I thought it's been a while since I posted some Italian fare.. so this post was lying idle for months now.. ( thanks to my hectic schedule) I'm glad I'm posting it now and sharing this super easy and yummy recipe for your lazy afternoons.

 I'd pledge my life for the aroma of basil and it's flavor! It's one of those divine herbs that God created and presented it to us!  It's very essence can be mesmerising and intoxicating :)

Back here in India sweet basil is called 'kama kasturi' and is available in the nursery is also planted in every other household in their backyard. So it should technically not be that arduous a task to find Sweet basil here in India. Basil seeds and the leaves are known to detoxify the body and purify blood. The seeds especially are an excellent remedy for poor appetite and constipation.

If you ask me I'd definitely vouch for planting a Kama Kasturi in each of your household at least for the most scintillating aroma you would ever come across.
