Dhonepatar Patar Chutney / Coriander Chutney

Dhonepatar Patar Chutney / Coriander Chutney
This Coriander Chutney has a different preparation... Normally the ingredients are ground raw and the chutney is ready. I remember one of the cook at my Aunt's place use to make this in Kolkatta. She use to called it Dhonepatar Bhorta and it was had with hot rice. This chutney is cooked with mustard oil and has a sweetly, tangy, spicy taste and can be preserved for 3 to 4 months. This chutney can be used to have on bread or can be used for cooking with fish or chicken.
Ingredients
1 big bunch Coriander Leaves cleaned and chopped with stems
10 Green chillies or More as per taste
1 big Lime Juice
Salt to taste
2 tbsp Sugar
1 cup Mustard oil

Method
Take all the ingredients in a grinder except oil, grind the ingredients into a paste. Take a pan, add 1/2 cup mustard oil, heat it. Add the coriander paste, on a low flame cook the coriander paste, for 10 minutes. Add 1/4 cup mustard oil in between. Cook the coriander paste till all the water has almost dried up, add the remaining oil. Keep cooking till no water remains in the paste and the oil starts to leave from the paste. Switch of the flame and cool it. Store it in a dry bottle and refrigerate it. Use when require. It stay well for 4 months. Always use a dry spoon while taking the chutney out.
