After almost a fortnight , we have settled down to a normal routine. The first half of the year is always filled with lots of enthusiasm. The relaxation during the holidays and a end of the year trip to India makes us all quite refreshed. So I have been cooking healthy and a decent variety of dishes too. I don’t cook too many dishes in a day. But I do try to keep it interesting for the kids. I was waiting for the Karachi bakery biscuits to get over which we had got from India. Finally yesterday, I baked some brownies for my kids tea time snack.They were so excited and loved every bit of them. For regular snacking, I try to keep my bakes healthy. I try to use healthy ingredients. Though we do compromise on the texture and taste to some extent when we compare to those which are available in the regular bakery , they are still very delicious. The satisfaction of feeding the kids at the same time is just awesome.
Here I have used some jowar/sorghum flour of which I had some in the freezer. I wanted to use something healthy and thinking of whole wheat flour or oats, I finally decided to make with millet. You can try using any kind of millet flour. I have not tried but am sure it would work as long as there is chocolate in it. You can even use whole wheat flour instead of maida. The texture would be a bit more chewy in that case. And please feel free to use any kind of sugar you have. I have used orange marmalade here . I have always loved the combination of orange and chocolate. I had some marmalade and wanted to use it in my baking.
Hope you try this recipe and do let me know your feedback.
