Use

In Thailand, Lemon Basil is called maeng lak and it is one of several types of basil used in Thai cuisine. The leaves feature in certain curries and it is also indispensable for the noodle dish Khanom chin nam ya. The seeds resemble frog’s eggs after they have been soaked in water and are used in sweet desserts. You can also use the strongly scented leaves in soups, salads, chilli sauces and fish dishes.
