Sharing my ‘Dhonepata bata’ recipe with all of you. I just love to have this with steamed rice!
Dhonepata Bata/Roasted paste of Coriander leaves
- Coriander leaves- 1 fat bunch (wash well, roughly chop and keep aside)
- Garlic paste- 1/2 tsp
- Mustard oil- 2 tbsp
- Salt to taste
- Green chilies- 3-4 (adjust according to your tolerance)
- Aamchur powder/dry mango powder- 1/2 tsp
In a mixer/grinder add chopped coriander leaves and green chilies. Grind till a coarse paste forms. Heat oil in a frying pan. Add garlic paste, coriander leaves paste, aamchur powder and salt (don’t overdo with the salt, add carefully). Keep constant stirring (4-5 minutes max) on medium high flame, let the extra water of coriander leaves paste evaporate completely, when the paste starts to leave the pan and at the same time turns little darker in color also, then you are done with the dish. Remove from the heat.
Serve with hot rice. Enjoy!
