    • Prep:
    • Cook:
    basil is my favorite ingredient I had pesto pasta in 2010 for the first time and simply fell in love with it. But I could always feel the preservatives with canned products and so learnt to grow my own plants - finding it to be an rewarding experience. I make pesto my way and this recipe is great.
    Main Preperation Step
    • In a blender add the basil parmesan chesse and olive oil and blend at the lowest speed for 10 seconds.

    • add the tomato ketchup and mustard seeds and blend for another 10 seconds

    • finally add the garlic cloves and pepper and blend for 20 seconds

    • traditionally we have to add pine nuts to the mixture but I prefer almonds instead .

    • taste the paste if its too thick you can add some more tomato ketchup to level the flavour or even a tablespoon of vinegar can work in your favour

    • I added a few coriander leaves at the end and gave it a final blend

    • enjoy the pesto with fresh paneer or mix it in pasta to make pesto pasta
