Organic Brownies

18 Nov

Dear All,

Hope you all had a safe & smoke-free Diwali.

Over the free last weekend I decided to try out something new, a dessert which I’ve never tried my hands before at.

It was ORGANIC BARLEY FLOUR BROWNIE!!

Here’s the recipe just in case you want to try it out.

Ingredients:
Organic Barley Flour
Organic Cashews
Organic Cardamom
Organic Coffee
Organic Raisins
Organic Jaggery Powder
Organic Honey
Shredded Coconut
Butter
Rock Salt (to taste)
Banana & Milk (these were missing from my ingredient list due to which the stickiness was missing)

I pounded elaichi (cardamom) and cashews till the time the cashews turned into almost fine powder. In a separate big bowl I put the organic barley atta, added organic jaggery powder (which is a good substitute for sugar) & a dash of organic coffee and mixed it thoroughly. I then added loads of honey, melted butter, shredded coconut and mixed them thoroughly (mixing with hand works best here, I believe). I would have loved to add some mashed bananas & milk here for it to become a thick paste but I didn’t have these handy. You could use egg as well to help this become a consistent thick paste.

On a buttered tray I poured the entire contents & added organic raisins before evening it out. I then put this in oven and baked this for a good 30-45 mins. Once out of the oven, it needed a while to cool down. But I couldn’t resist & ended up having a huge big hot slab of it, before allowing it to cool down. It was YUMM!!!  Im a big foodie and my own biggest critic. The outcome really had to be GOOD for me to post this article.

Here’s a pic. I’m gonna make some more tomorrow & this time around try adding banana & milk, hoping that it will be better than this one.

Try it!! There’s no chance anything could go wrong. After all, even I could make it.
