I love to experiment in cooking, and I keep crossing chocolate and desi. This is a very old recipe (and picture, so the low quality of the picture) which I invented two years ago during the winters, as a result of my midnight chocolate craving. Last year I couldn’t find this picture and recipe even though I was craving this halwa a lot, nor could I remember how I made it. Now as the winters are approaching again I dug out this recipe and decided to share it here, so other chocolate carvers can benefit too =P It’s a rich and not-so-healthy recipe but I love it for an occasional treat, and it makes just one serving.
Sooji (semolina): 3 tablespoons
Cocoa powder: 1 teaspoon
Ovaltine (Or any other chocolate malt milk powder): 2 teaspoons
Sugar: 1,1/2 tablespoon
Milk (or water): 1/2 cup
Ghee/Butter: 1,1/2 tablespoons approx.
Fry the sooji (semolina) in butter till golden brown. Dissolve cocoa powder and Ovaltine in the milk and add to the sooji (semolina), add sugar, stir well till thick. That’s it. Best served warm. I garnished with chocolate sprinkles.
