Coriander pesto sauce from my kitchen. Usually classic and traditional pesto was made of basil leaves, pine nuts and olive oil combination. So I was searching around long time for the pesto recipe that can be made with ingredients from Indian kitchen. Here comes the coriander pesto sauce that goes well with pasta made with available ingredients from my kitchen.
Coriander leaves - 2 bunches, around 4 cups packed (washed & drained)
Pistachios - 1/4 Cup
Garlic - 3 pods
Olive oil - 1/2 Cup
Salt - As per taste
Pepper - 1/2 Teaspoon
Lemon juice - 2 Tablespoon
Parmesan cheese - 2 Tablespoon grated(optional)
Place all the ingredients except Parmesan cheese in a blender or mixer grinder
Grind to the desired consistency by adding more olive oil if required
Scrape at the sides of the blender for even grinding
Finally add Parmesan cheese and pulse it to combine
Once done, use it straight away or store in an air tight container & refrigerate up to a month.
