Coriander Almond Pesto

I mostly prepare my pesto with basil leaves and i love the flavour of the basil leaves while having my pastas. When i went through Sharmi's space, i got hooked to this coriander almond pesto immediately i tried them today for our lunch as i planned to prepare pastas.Coriander leaves and almond works out wonder and we loved the flavour of this pesto.

I loved seriously the simplicity of this pesto and obviously its our recent favourite.I just increased the quantity of coriander leaves and grinded the pesto with flaxseed oil instead of water else i didnt changed anything and went as per the original recipe. If you love the flavour of coriander leaves, you guys should give a try to this super flavourful,super nutty and delicious pesto. I even enjoyed the leftover pesto as a spread over some toasted bread slices for my evening snacks.Sending to Tried & Tasted event guest hosted by me,event by Lakshmi.


2cups Cooked pasta
1cup Coriander leaves (washed)
20nos Almonds (deskinned)
6nos Garlic cloves (chopped)
2nos Green chillies (chopped)
1/2tsp Oil (for cooking)
Flaxseed oil (as per need)
Salt

Heat the oil in a pan,fry the garlic cloves and green chillies until a nice aroma comes out,put off the stove.

Grind the washed coriander seeds,almonds,fried garlic cloves,chillies,salt and flax seed oil, until the paste turns bit coarse.

Add enough pesto to the cooked past and serve immediately.
