The Weekend Kitchen

Some hits, some misses…..in my kitchen, over the weekends

What’s in a name?

Brownies are eternal favorites at home. Father and the two offsprings clamour for it, all the time. And each can finish one whole batch by themselves in no time. I’m not exaggerating. As I measure out the butter , sugar and maida, there is a feeling of foreboding. Their favorite one has 150 g butter, 1 1/2 cup sugar, 5-6 bars of snickers and chocolate chips on top of that. Sometimes ganache as well. If the lot ate vegetables otherwise, I wouldn’t have been so worried. Like necessity, worry also causes new discoveries. Tried this yesterday. Yet to name it 🙂

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups chopped dark chocolate pieces

3/4 cups oil (sun flower or olive – olive oil gives extra softness and glow)

1 cup grated jaggery

4  eggs

1 T vanilla

1 cup whole wheat flour

a pinch of baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup grated carrot

1/2 cup crushed walnuts

Sift flour, bs and salt. Keep aside. 

Warm the chocolate chips and oil together on high in a microwave for 40 sec. Mix well using a manual whisk.

Add jaggery, mix well. Add the eggs one by one and mix well after each addition. Add vanilla.

Add the sifted flour in three equal portions and blend till just mixed. Add the grated carrot and 3/4 of the walnuts. Gently blend.

Transfer to a square pan lined with oiled aluminum foil. Sprinkle the remaining walnuts on top. Bake at 170 C for 27 – 30 minutes.

(Optional – Add 1 cup of choco chips along with the grated carrot. You could also pour some ganache on top once cooled.)
