Holy / Sacred Basil Seeds (Sabja, Sweet Basil Seeds)
Tukmaria are also known as basil seeds. The basil plant has a strong, pungent and sweet aroma. Basil is usually added at the last moment when cooking because adding it too soon can destroy the flavor. The seeds, tukmaria are used in Asian drinks and desserts (Falooda). They are used after soaked in water, hey have the ability to soak up water to create a jelly rather like tapioca. Reputed to have cooling properties in ayurveda, they are also used to flavorlessly thicken drinks and desserts.

Easy to use
To soak basil seeds, add 8 ounces (237 ml or 1 cup) of water per 1 tablespoon (13 grams or 0.5 ounces) of basil seeds.
Use more water if desired, as the seeds only absorb as much as needed. Using too little water may cause the seeds to clump as they hydrate.
Let the seeds soak for about 15 minutes. As the seeds swell, they approximately triple in size. Additionally, the gel-like outer portion turns gray.
The center of a soaked basil seed remains black. This part has a light crunch when you chew it — similar to tapioca.
Strain the soaked basil seeds and add them to your recipe. If a recipe contains a lot of liquid, such as soup, pre-soaking is unnecessary.
