Hi all, Really, interesting to read ! I would like to add that krishna thulasi has got very good medicinal properties. Yet, it is not to be consumed as it is. The other plants of the thulasi species may be had, as is seen very often. But not the krishna thulasi. Certain properties of this variety of thulasi are not meant for mortals like us. I would suggest pelicano to do further research on thulasi before consuming it as it is. Pelicano, krishna thulasi is taken orally mostly by the sages and saints to ward of earthly pleasures from their mind. I hope you can understand. Yet, i shall also look into this issue (yes, ofcourse, on the web and from the medicinal herbal books available) and then let you know very soon. Bye, Rekha.

what is the significance of having tulsi katte in the backyard. I am married to a traditional madwa brahmin kannada family.Why is tulsi pooja done before regular pooja? How is krishna tulsi superior to other forms of tulsi like sri tulsi or other tulsis?

Thanks Linda. Pelicano, I asked my parents about Red Tulsi. They said it is called as "Krishna Tulsi" and is supposed to be superior to all other Tulsi plants. We Hindus have a tradition of making rounds to Tulsi Katte in the morning, the scientific reason behind this is, Tulsi plants leave oxygen and it is good for health to inhale fresh oxygen in the morning. These leaves are chewed to overcome mouth ulcers, digestive problems and mouth odor.

Pelicano, We don't use Tulsi leaves for cooking. Tulsi leaves with reddish tinge are new to me, I had seen them in local farmer's market, but didn't know what to do with them. I have seen some people eating Tulsi leaves as it is, since they are very good for health. I have seen some people using it in cooking also, but I don't remember any dish with these leaves. Yes, there is a "OM" and a prayer "Shri Ram Jay Ram Jay Jay Ram" written on our Tulsi Katte. We have a picture of "Ganesha" on it and a Tulsi plant on the top. Usually we paint the Tulsi Katte every year during Tulsi pooja. I can't explain you how much I like this pooja :).

shilpa- thanks for sharing the info about this holiday. this was very interesting. i had a tulsi/holy basil plant growing near my door in a pot last year. it was the kind with a reddish tinge to its leaves. is this ever used for cooking in your native place? i was just curious.
