Green peas pesto is a healthy and delicious sauce that can be prepared very easily. I found this recipe in Aldi's website.

This was the first time I tried pesto, and my family really liked it. I served it as chutney with the savoury cake and it was really delicious.

2 tbsp grated coconut

Salt to taste

Combine the half cooked peas, onion, garlic, ginger, green chili, curry leaves, coconut, lemon juice, black pepper and salt in a grinder. Crush the mixture in a grinder.
