When I was searching her site to see , what she has not blogged about. I was stumbled to see ,that she has given almost all combinations. I was struggling to give her a new recipe. Finally decided to give this home made chocolate post. Check the recipe here.
Last year when I visited India, I grabbed some props and recipe books from"RMKV" Tirunelveli.One of the book is "Sweets" written by "Malliga Badrinath" - a famous South Indian cooking icon. In that book, this simple to make chocolate recipe inspired me . So prepare the chocolates using milk powder and cocoa powder. This is easy to make ,but care should be taken while preparing the syrup. If the syrup doesn't form single thread ,then the chocolate will not set properly. Sifting both milk powder and cocoa powder is necessary, so that we don't get any lumps.
The butter gives a shiny texture to the chocolate.We can mould the chocolates in n number of ways. We can use different moulds to prepare . I just used a loaf pan to prepare the chocolate.We can use any nuts or raisins of our choice and add it to the chocolate. These chocolates stay fresh for almost 10 days on the counter, if it is stored in air tight container.
