Baby Potatoes in Cilantro Pesto

Baby Potatoes - 8 - Add salt and boil with skin. (i used red baby potatoes)
Onion - 1 medium sized - chopped.
Olive oil - 2 tsp
Salt - to taste

For the Pesto Paste:
Cilantro - 1 cup tightly packed
Mint - 1/2 cup
Garlic cloves - 5
Green chilly - 8 (adjust according to your spice level)

Grind the ingredients for pesto to a smooth paste adding a little water. Heat oil in a pan and saute onions till transparent. Add a pinch of salt to the onions and saute well. Mean while make little slits around the potatoes using a knife(this helps the gravy to penetrate into the potatoes).
Now add the ground pesto paste and saute for few min. add salt as required.
Add potatoes to it and saute untill the potatoes are well coated with pesto paste. Goes well with chapathi as well as a side dish for rice and Biriyani.
