Eggless Chocolate Brownies

Ingredients
100 gms softened butter 170 gms (3/4th cup) castor sugar 1/2 cup curds (dahi) 3 tsp coffee mixed properly in a few drops ofwater handful of chopped walnuts (akhrot) 50 gms roughly chopped dark chocolate 1/2 cup cocoa powder 1/2 cup plain flour (maida) 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp vanilla essence
butter for greasing

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. 2. Mix butter and sugar really well. 3. Add curd and mix slowly. 4. Add walnuts, dark chocolate and coffee. 5. Then add plain flour, baking powder and cocoa powder. Mix well slowly. 6. The mixture will be of quite a thick consistency. 7. Grease a square 6"x6" brownie mould with some butter and spread the mixture in it. 8. Bake it in the oven for about 40minutes. You can check if it is baked properly by inserting a clean knife in the centre. If it comes out clean,it means the brownies are cooked.

9. Another way to check if the brownies are cooked, is by feeling the crust. The crust should be hard but should feel soft after pressing a little. 10. It will not rise like cakes. 11. After it cools down take out the brownies out of the mould. 12. Let it cool for another hour before cutting.
