Thai Holy Basil Leaves, Grapao
Add to cart1.75oz - Temporarily Out of Stock 

We offer fresh Thai basil "horapa" but this is the more spicy "grapao" basil. Also called "hot basil" because of it's peppery, exotic flavor.

The product is a fresh arrival and maintains a great deal of flavor. You can mix it with our fresh basil, or use alone to add peppery basil flavor to all kinds of soups, fried rice, or noodle dishes.

Try it in our Spicy Thai Chicken, Gai Pad Grapao recipe.

Also see our Yellow Pepper Soup recipe.

This is a fairly large bag, for generous use. Ingredients: dried holy basil leaf. No preservatives. Product of Thailand. We also offer a coarse-ground holy basil powder.







Spicy Chicken with Fresh Thai Basil, 'Gai Pad Horapa'

This very simple Thai spicy chicken dish uses just a few ingredients, yet is loaded with flavor. We prepared this recipe in two different versions -- one with fresh red chiles and one with fresh green chiles(see pictures), the green chile version also using dried holy basil.

The key is to use a generous amount of fresh, fragrant Thai sweet basil.
