Flashback five years. Life was much simpler because the choices were limited.
Breakfast : Only cornflakes
Lunch : Rice with Sambar and dry vegetable side dish
Dinner : Same as lunch
Fast forward to now. This morning,
Me to Hubby : ‘Idli, dosa or bread for break fast?’
Hubby : ‘Hmm…Idli….or Dosa…..or bread. Anything is fine’
Life is still fine even though the choices are more :).
Dedicating this chocolate to the bitter sweet, but thoroughly enjoyable moments of life.
I found this recipe in My Diverse Kitchen. All the ingredients were readily available. I doubled the quantity and made these in a jiffy. The real trial was the waiting time. They tasted like dark chocolate to me and I loved them. Like Aparna says, try this with an open mind and you will be pleasantly surprised.
Note: Keep in mind that they taste are a bit like dark bitter chocolate. I love it though :)!
- Drinking Chocolate : 4 tbsp
- Powdered Sugar : 4 tbsp
- Cocoa : 2 tbsp
- Milk Powder : 2 tbsp
- Lemon Juice : 1 tsp
- Water : as required
- Sift the dry ingredients twice together to remove lumps.
- Add the lemon juice and mix thoroughly with a spoon or a fork.
- Add water in teaspoonfuls, and mix until you get a crumbly mix.
- Kneed with your hands to get a slightly stiff dough. The dough can be refrigerated at this point to be used later.
- Grease the chocolate molds with oil or butter and fill it with the chocolate dough.
- Let it dry overnight, don’t refrigerate. Take the chocolates off the molds the next day and let it dry for another 4-5 hours.
- Wrap and gift or eat and enjoy!
- The above quantity gave me six reasonably big chocolate pieces.
