From the photo, it looks like it could due to mites. But then the yellowing is due to lack of nutrition. Is it the dots you are concerned about?
Yes GG, every leaf gets the dots on it back. I see similar problem with Tulasi and Basil. It has reddish dots on the back of the leaves. What are these dots?
Mite damage will appear as yellow dots on the top and then you can see tiny bugs that are mites under the leaves. Those reddish dots you see must be moving. do they? In some plants the yellow dots on the top may appear in different color. Say if you have red color cabbage/red radish or something like that, then the color on the top will be purple.. basically the green goes away ( chlorosis).
