Expert Tips and Tricks

  • Don't over grind it. Blitz just until the basil is ground. if you over grind the pesto will lose its bright color.

  • Taste it. Check if it is seasoned according to your taste.

  • Use different herbs. If you don't like basil, use fresh mint or coriander instead.

  • Make it spicy. Add some green chili or black pepper powder. There is no right or wrong. It's just that easy to customize it according to your preferences.
