Do you ever look up a recipe online only to ignore it because it requires an immaculate amount of chopping?

If you are a fan of global cuisines (the quintessential Italian, Continental) you may have noticed the extensive uses of freshly chopped herbs. They are added to provide layers of flavour and aroma to the food, making your favourite pasta or spaghetti much more palatable.

Basil is one such popular culinary herb. It is popularly used in Italian cuisine, but is also used as a flavouring agent in desserts and cakes.

Check out an easy way to chop basil leaves from Chef Kunal Kapur who shared the method on Instagram.

Step 2

Roll the stack with a gentle hand and slice with a sharp knife.

And et voila! Your finely chopped basil leaves will be prepped and ready to go in only two simple steps.
