Pesto Korma recipe - Mixed vegetable korma - Mixed vegetable kurma - Side dish for Roti, Idli, Dosa or fried rice

Pesto is one of my kids most favourite. Other day after doing Peas Pesto Pasta and I had left over pesto. Couple of days later I was planning to do roti. While thinking about what side dish to make, Pesto korma crossed my mind. Instead of using water to dilute the paste I thought of using coconut milk to enhance the flavour. While doing the dish I was crossing my fingers. Finally when my kids were having dinner they were completely surprised to hae "Pasta taste" in the korma. I told them it is made up of Pesto not pasta Smiley . They loved it!
