People either love chocolate or they do not exist. I make a lot of dishes which are easy to replicate and amazing to eat. Chocolate Mousse is one such dish that people will eat without any complain. This dish is so light, so creamy and so much of chocolate goodness.
But ofcourse, products from my kitchen will always have a twist. This time I added chilies to my chocolate mousse. This is not something which is new and people aren’t aware of. Infact, chocolate and chili goes well together.
I am also most certain that all you food enthusiast and food explorer must have had chilli Ice-cream, chilli chocolate, chilli candies, chilli vodka, and a lot more unusual crazy flavours. This one is my attempt to create this simple dish and quench your post-dinner thirst of something sweet.
Let’s not talk much, and start melting and playing with chocolate.
|Dark Chocolate||125 gms|
|Cocoa Powder||2 tbsp|
|Chilli Powder||1 tsp|
|Milk or Fresh Cream||4 tbsp|
|Caster Sugar||1 tbsp|
How to cook cook cook!
- Using a double boiler, melt your chocolate until smooth.
- Make a smooth paste of cocoa powder and chilli powder with milk (or fresh cream) and add to the melted chocolate. Mix well.
- Beat the egg yolks till it is creamy and add them to the chocolate mixture.
- Set the bowl over some simmering hot water and cook gently for about 5-8 minutes. Stir this mixture all the time until the mixture has thickened.
- Check the chilli heat level and if required add some more chilli powder.
- Take the separated egg white and whisk the egg whites until they are foamy, then add the sugar and whisk until you get a nice glossy mixture (egg meringue) with a stiff peak.
- Gently fold them into the chocolate mixture with a metal spoon. Don’t over mix it.
- Pour this mixture into ramekins/bowls, garnish with chocolate chips or chocolate shavings. Sprinkle some caster sugar and chilli powder for the extra kick.
- Chill until set and ready to serve.
