As the Rau Ram that I planted back from Portugal, grows very nicely, I use it a maximum. It's so good, even simply in a tomato salad.
Every time I cut a branch, I put it back in earth and it grows quickly! Yeah, so much pleasure to believe that I've got green hands ;-)) no way, just a dream, it's a great and generous plant. Quite normal knowing that one of her cousins is a weed.
The recipe is meant to be Thaï because it comes from a very old publication of an Australian Womens Weekly, but I think that it's more a thaï style recipe.
Never mind, it's good and the perfume is unique.
