WHOLE WHEAT CHOCOLATE BROWNIES DESCRIPTION
Chocolate brownies | whole wheat chocolate brownies (eggless, no butter, no maida, no oven) | चॉकलेट ब्राउनी | சாக்லேட் ப்ரௌனி is a delicious, healthy, simple, easy and tasty cake prepared with whole wheat flour, oil, cocoa powder, milk, dark chocolate, sugar, vanilla essence and walnuts.
This rich chocolate brownie recipe is eggless (without eggs) and it is prepared in a pressure cooker. It can also be baked in an oven. As whole wheat flour and oil is used instead of all purpose flour (maida) and butter, this makes the cake healthy. Oil and milk give enough moisture that is required for the brownie. Curd can be included as one of the ingredients to moisturize the cake. Please don’t keep the chocolate brownies (after baking) in open air for more than few minutes as there are chances for it to get harden. It is very important to store the brownies in an airtight container to retain moisture.
I personally don’t prefer melting the chocolate compound in double boiler method as it has to be done very carefully. I have dissolved the chocolate without using double boiler method or in a microwave. The grated chocolate will dissolve completely within few minutes if it is stirred continuously along with the milk. It is not mandatory to dissolve the chocolate completely also. It is more than enough if you are able to dissolve it up to 70 – 80 percent (the remaining chocolate pieces will add more taste while eating it).
This indian style chocolate brownie cake recipe is a combination of crumbly, cakey, chewy and fudgy brownie. The addition of dark chocolate and cocoa powder makes it fudgier. As the baking powder is added, it is little crumbly and cakey. Baking soda can also be added in a little amount to make it more crumbly and cakey. Chocolate brownie recipe won’t be complete without the addition of walnuts which adds a unique taste to it.
Chocolate brownies are generally baked in squared cake moulds. It is very important to cover the entire cake moulds (in all its sides) with butter/baking paper before pouring the cake batter. The cake batter should not be in direct contact with the mould else there are chances for it to get burnt at the edges while baking.
As the brownies will be chocolatey, serving with chocolate syrup is our preference. This lip-smacking cake can also be served with ice cream. This simple brownie can be prepared with easily available ingredients at home. You may like our whole wheat chocolate cake, eggless banana cake.
