After a scrumptious dinner, I still returned ,dissatisfied and grumpy back home….reason ,my dessert…! Whenever I eat out, I keep some space for dessert in my already full tummy. And although the dinner was delicious , I just didnt enjoy the sizzling brownie!! Firstly,it wasnt a brownie, but a normal chocolate cake and the chocolate sauce runny and looked like made with some kind of a chocolate drink powder!!! Wonder how a top notch restaurant can afford goofups like this!! So the very next day , I got equipped with loads of chocolate, to make my version of a very rich chocolate brownie and a quick chocolate fudge to sizzle on top!! And its eggless,100% Veg.!! Wish I could carry a sample of those along with the recipe to that restaurant , just to tell them ,how it should be!!!
Preheat oven to 180 deg.C. Grease the baking tin using some oil and dust it with some maida. Sieve maida with baking powder and soda bicarb and sugar. Mix the melted chocolate with oil.
In a bowl add the melted chocolate and oil mixture and add condensed milk
Start adding the maida and sugar mixture and mix till a smooth batter is formed. Adjust the consistency by adding some milk if batter is too thick. Pour the batter in the greased baking tin and bake for 15 -20 mins , till the brownie leaves the sides
For the fudge, add butter to the melted chocolate and place the mixture in a saucepan. Once butter melts , add the condensed milk and wisk till a smooth fudge is formed. Put off the flame and transfer in a ceramic pot. This mixture may thicken later
Over a piece of brownie(heated in microwave,just before serving)place a scoop of vanilla ice cream and pour ,hot chocolate fudge over it.You can use heated sizzler plate if you have and place the brownie over it. Garnish wih chopped almonds is needed
Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.

Most of us Ubanites have this new found love for a space that’ll give us some “space”..Literally!
A place outside the boundaries of your home or workplace where you can be alone or with your friends and not be bothered with the hovering staff to take your order, execute and slap a bill and wait for you to empty space. I love my personal space and I’m very protective about it. So when the saturation sets in, ( being a mom to two naughty boys, I need to reset myself very often) I head to a nearby cafe just alone or with my bestie to spend next few hours in peace.
