I was so satisfied and felt content after taking the first bite of these cookies that I could not stop myself from eating one. My lil one liked them, it was a toddler approved too. I thought this will be the best recipe to post after such a long break for you all so you can enjoy these cookies as much as we enjoyed…so here is the sweet decadent recipe for you all. Do give it a try and let me know how it was for you.

Ingredients:

1 cup dark chocolate,
1/2cup unsalted butter, diced
2 tsp ground coffee
3/4 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup plain flour
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder

Instructions:

  1. Place the butter into a small saucepan and over medium heat cook until browned. Butter should be nutty brown.
  2. Immediately pour the butter into a bowl with the ground coffee. Now Set aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Now sieve the coffee and butter mixture.
  4. Now keep the bowl with the butter over a pan of simmering water.(just like double boiling method).
  5. Add the chocolate in the bowl and stir occasionally until fully melted.
  6. Remove the bowl from the heat and set aside for sometime.
  7. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, or you can hand mixer, whisk together the eggs and sugars for exactly 5-6 minutes, on medium/high speed.
  8. Once the eggs have been mixing for exactly 5 minutes pour in the chocolate mixture and mix for about 30 seconds to combine. 
  9. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl and mix very briefly just until combined. Use your spatula to give one last mix, scraping the bottom of the bowl to make sure everything is evenly combined. Don’t overmix here.
  10. Use a 2 tablespoon sized ice cream scoop to form the cookies. Make sure to leave plenty of space between each cookie as they will spread and bake for 8-9 minutes. The cookies will come out of the oven with that crinkled look and slightly domed.
  11. Allow the cookies to be cool on the baking trays for at-least 30 minutes before removing them from the tray to cool completely (as they will be very soft)
  12. Once cooled, enjoy the brownie crinkle cookies.!!

Share your pictures of the cookies and tagged me in instagram if you make these cookies on instahande.

Paneer Butter Masala

This is one of my favorite curry of paneer (Indian cottage cheese) out of so many. In restaurant they give paneer butter masala in a smooth creamy tangy gravy. I always use to like that because have never tried this version of butter paneer Masala, you all must try this recipe and I am sure you all will love it. This recipe I prepare on those days when you want to enjoy a nice and tasty paneer at home without much hassle of preparation.

The main trick is in this recipe which makes it so tasty and delicious is the ratio of onion and tomatoes. You have to keep it in mind for sure for best results. The ratio is always has to be 1:2 if you using one onion and use two tomatoes. This is the key of this recipe.

Binge on this recipe with any sort of bread you get your hands on like Naan, Tandoori roti, laccha parantha or even steamed rice. I prefer it with laccha parantha.

It does not have a long process and not much time consuming.

It is a hit in my family and friends..!!

Matar Paneer

Hi, I will be sharing with you all the recipe of dhaba style Matar (Peas) Paneer(Indian Cottage Cheese). For some people who doesn’t know what dhaba is. “Dhaba is the name given to roadside restaurants in India. They are on highways, generally serve local cuisine, and also serve as truck stops. They are most commonly found next to petrol stations, and most are open 24 hours a day.”

I just love Paneer because it blends really well with any other ingredients. I can eat paneer in any form like paneer curries, paneer parantha or paneer sandwich etc.

Peas and Paneer curry is one of the popular Indian recipe. And it’s my husband’s favorite.😊

This is not a restaurant style paneer, it is typically dhaba style so the preparation is bit different but trust me it tastes really awesome. The preparation of dhaba style has no cream, cashews etc. On the other hand in restaurants they use lot of cream, cashews to make the gravy richer and heavier.

I like this style of matar paneer because it is light, easy to prepare and taste amazing.

Let’s start with the recipe of Matar Paneer
