Tasty Tips

Thai bird chilies are small, red or green chili peppers often used in Southeast Asian cuisine. They are sold in Asian markets or well-stocked grocery stores.

Thai basil has green mint-like leaves with dark purple stems. The bold, pungent herb has a slightly licorice-like flavor and is used in both raw and cooked Asian dishes.
