HI
This is my second blog post and again part of one more challenge"‘Baking from the Book’"
I have always been addicted to baking and try to buy cookbooks often. When i came across this challenge i thought of this recipe because my daughter loves anything that is cooked with chocolate.....CHOCHOHOLIC:-). This recipe is from the book "THE CHOCOLATE COOKBOOK BY TARLA DALAL" i am sure many of us are....
Try this recipe out to satiate your chocolate craving

CINNAMON POWDER 1 1/2 TSP

NUTMEG POWDER 1/2 TSP (i omitted this)

This is how i adapted the dal recipe to micro mode....
