    • Hi Jerome,

      I think it doesnt, since I haven’t mentioned it in the recipe. I’m in Kerala now and the recipe book which I got the recipe from is in Bahrain, so I cant recheck it :((


  1. Hi Maria,
    I have been following your blog and have been enjoying it immensely  i would like to know if you have the recipe for Egg Masala or some nice smelling egg curry.  Thanks a ton.  

    • Hi Tara

      I havent tried making this brownies with cocoa powder, so am not sure about it. However I think the consistency of the brownie might change if you use cocoa powder instead of the chocolate.


  2. Hi maria… I d like to know which chocolate wud be ideal for this recipe. I reside in bangalore.. so kindly mention which brand suits best for this recipe…

    • Hi Liza

      I am not familiar with the brands in Bangalore :( You can use any brand of baking/cooking chocolate for this recipe. I think baking/cooking chocolate should be available in all super markets.

      Hope you will like this brownie.

      Happy baking :)
