MarathMoLi Chocolate Akhrod Manuka Brownie

This recipe is specially for the self proclaimed chocolate snobs and our blogger buddies, Bee and Jai. It is to thank them for some fabulous reads they provide. I love their whacky sense of humour though I lack it many times. They won't share their pictures on the blog, I couldn't locate those chimps. Remember those, how Bee and Jai fooled us. They do let you into their lives though. You feel you know them and yet you don't. But like all blogger buddies we are bound by the passion for food, cooking and blogging. Bee is amchya Mumbaichi Mulgi and Jai a Mumbaicha Mulga Jawai so here's to you in jugalbandi style.

I ask Thou forgiveness for the blasphemy of menial chocolate substitutes for India don't keep parallels of all those wonderful ingredients you used and Moi not ready to pay from my nose. But I can swear they tasteth goooood. This is my second attempt to create a pirated copy of thy recipe of Chocolate-Almond Brownies in a row.


MarathMoLi Yaadi
  • 25gms Cadbury's Cocoa pood
  • 1 cup dahi
  • 1 cup maida
  • 1 cup Hershey's chocolate agal
  • 1/4 Akhrod
  • 3/4 cup saakhar
  • 6 tablespoon tup
  • mooth bhar manuka
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla sugandha
  • 1/2 teaspoon bru tatpar kawphi
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking pood
  • 1/2 teaspoon meeth
  • mooth bhar pista kachrya

List for the Angrez

25gms Cadbury's Cocoa powder
1 cup curds
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup Hershey's chocolate syrup
1/4 walnuts
3/4 cup sugar
6 tablespoon unclarified butter
handful raisins
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 teaspoon bru instant coffee
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
handful pistachio slivers

Grind walnuts and sugar together to a powder. Mix all ingredients together except pistachio slivers. The batter should fold like cake batter. Prepare the baking tray by lining with foil hung over the edges and lightly brush it with oil. Pour in the batter and spread evenly by tapping the tray a bit. Sprinkle the pistachio slivers on the batter. Bake for 25 mins at 180 deg celcius. Remove while it looks still moist. Mine got a little dry. Also next time I would inlcude 2 more tablespoons of butter or 1 tablespoon of oil to keep them more moist.

Best way to enjoy these superb brownies is by dunking in cold milk.

I also recommend their:
Sometime ago I had made Falafels from their blog with kala chana/ black gram. Black gram is healthier than white chickpeas. They were very tasty.

In the picture you see falafels with ketchup on it, surrounded with orange wedges and a glass of spicy buttermilk.


  1. Anjali, that was so funny...and you say you lack a sense of humour...I remember those chimp faces very well too:)...and your brownies sound lovely.

  2. Its interesting to know the ingredients in two languages :)
    BTW the brownies look yummy!!!!

  3. i learnt a new word today (manuka). btw, j is not from mumbai (though he probably wished he was, lol). he grew up all over the place, mainly in tamil nadu.

    hey, you should post more often. don't disappear on us from time to time.

    and yes, tup adds a great flavour punch.

  4. Brownies look delicious.
    Did you say u have lack of humour. No way you have them in buckets :-)

  5. Marathmoli Brownie khup aavadli ! :)

  6. Interesting brownie. Lets try it.

  7. lovely write up...love ur browinees...

  8. Thank you Anjali. You make us feel special. Seems like they turned out great. You can never have enough of those brownies. Coming to think of it the brownies and falafels can be used in tandem. Here's how.
    1) Eat one brownie
    2) Eat a falafel to get rid of the chocolate taste
    3) Go to step 1


  9. Bee I sometimes wish blogging should be the only thing that I have to do (lol). Oh really I always thought he was a Mumbaiite...chalo atleast he is Mumbaicha Jawai (SIL) :);).

    Jai its so sweet of both of you to comment here and in your usual style:).

    Happy cook, tee, rina, remya those brownies put a smile on my team mates at work, that is some testimonial ;).

  10. I actually had to laugh out, coz I was trying to decippher the ingredients you are written earlier, n then as I kept reading I read "list for the angrez"....LOL.

    The brownies look yummy

  11. You did a good job. I am JB would have got a kick out of this
