I do watch cookery shows and few years back a show on NDTV Good times ‘Do It Sweet’ by Chef Vicky Ratnani was one of my favourite cookery shows. I used to adore his recipes which were so unique and all of his recipes sounded awesome. He had prepared a recipe on the show ‘Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolates’ and I still remember the way he moulded a chocolate cup using silicon mould. The filling constituted chocolate.
I wanted to prepare then itself but silicon moulds were not available in stores as today. Now I have a silicon muffins tray which I have used to mould a cup made of chocolate. Chocolate mousse in a chocolate cup is a yummy dessert where chocolate mousse is filled in a chocolate cup. I prepared just one chocolate cup and filling for it as I have to eat the whole thing( I can eat chocolates like anything but I really want to keep a check on my weight and Abu is a chocolate hater, especially if it is dark chocolate). Do check out and tell me how you find this dessert……….
