Triple Chocolate Fudge Brownies(Flourless)


This is a very moist Brownie to be served with ice cream or chocolate sauce.
My suggestion for a variation
Chocolate mousse, coffee mousse,mocha mousse,vanilla mousse,pista mousse,or any of your favourite mousse,layered on top of this brownie,and dusted with chocolate powder,and chilled will be an excellent dessert.
For the ingredients
175 gm.butter
100 gm.dark chocolate
4 eggs
3/4 cup yoghurt /curd
1/2 cup cocoa powder
75 gm brown sugar
100 gm sugar
3 tblsp honey
1 tsp.instant coffee
125 gm chocolate chips(dark/milk)
125 gm.nuts(hazelnuts and walnuts coarsely chopped)
a pinch of salt.
1 tsp.vanilla essence
Method
Melt the butter,dark chocolate, the sugars, honey and instant coffee over a pan of boiling water,untill sugar is dissolved.Allow to cool.
Beat the eggs with salt and essence,gradually add the chocolate mix.Add the chopped nuts and chocolate chips,and mix lightly.
Pour into a greased dish and bake in a moderate oven for 30 minutes. You can refrigerate and cut into desired shapes.

Chicken cheesecake


Today I thought i’d turn a sweet dish to a savoury and succeeded.Got five star ratings from my judges none other than my kids..the best critics ever!

I tblsp honey
Salt to taste
1/4 cup chopped coriander /spring onions
1/2 tsp thyme or rosemary
2-3 finely chopped green chillies
1 tsp.cummin seed powder
A pinch of nutmeg

For the base :I used 2 spring roll sheets.You could use lasagne sheets.
Graham cracker crumbs with melted butter is also a good base.

Method:Grease a springform pan.Dip the springroll sheets in water for a minute and put it on the base.
Use a food processor or any blender and mix all the ingredients.Pour over base, and bake in a moderate oven for 30-35 minutes (180degrees).Remove and drizzle with lemon and mustard sauce.
For the sauce
1 cup chicken stock
1 lemon
1 tblsp.cornflour

Mix the cornflour with a little stock and keep aside.Heat the stock,add the cornflour,and when it becomes thick add the lemon juice and mustard.
Salt to taste.
Drizzle over the cheesecake, or serve separately.
