sure its a basil...
but the leaves look to be too thin for the sweet basil used in
western salads and eaten raw or in pesto...
in my experience, when the same seeds are grown in hot climate,
or when winter grown Basil plants behave as Sweet Basil,
and then are allowed to grow on their own till summer, the leaves
become thinner, sharper tasting ( almost as sharp as Tulsi leaves) ...
and with flowering ends up a little bitter...

Secondly... BASIL..OCIMUM to be exact cross pollinates like crazy
and what the end result is often bewildering....

Usha di...
PS did you get to take a picture from the side , so the sahpe of the
flower stalk be seen?
