Chocolate Brownies


  • 150 gm self-raising flour
  • 150 gm sugar
  • 100 ml ghee
  • 50 gm cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 100 gm nuts (cashew or badam)


  • Take a bowl and sift the flour, salt, sugar and cocoa powder into it. Mix them well using a dry spoon.
  • Add ghee along with unbeaten eggs and vanilla essence into the bowl with the flour mixture. Beat the mixture well using a spoon/fork or an egg beater.
  • Slowly add in the chopped nuts and beat the mixture again.
  • Spread the beaten mixture evenly on a well-greased (with unsalted butter) baking tin.
  • Pre-heat the oven for 10 minutes at 350°F/180° C and switch the oven off. Place the baking tin with the beaten mixture in the oven, switch it on again and bake the brownies in a moderate oven (350°F/180°C] for about 20-25 minutes. After this, switch off the oven and remove the baking tin to place it on an even surface. Take a knife and slowly cut the baked mixture into pieces (preferably square) while it is still hot. The size of the brownies however, is a matter of personal choice. Allow the brownies to cool and gently take them out one by one, for serving.
