I created a unique recipe and it turned out to be really delicious. Hurray!! Heres how the idea was born –
I read a book called “EVERYDAY RAW” by Matthew Kenney. The book is full of awesome recipes. The recipes used common fresh vegetables and the presentation was also very good. I got inspired to create a new recipe. I was thinking of posting some sweet recipe for Holi. I researched about the kind of recipes prepared during Holi. Mawa Gujia turned out to be the most common recipe. I thought – what can be a continental recipe with Mawa as the main ingredient? Mawa Brownie !! That would be a cool recipe! I didn’t want to use all purpose flour (maida) so I used almond powder, wheat flour and oats powder. The ingredients I used for brownie are totally different than a mawa cake.
Its very rich in taste and healthy.
- Almond powder – half cup
- Oats powder – half cup (dry roasted for two mins on medium flame and grinded in to a powder
- Sugar – three-fourth cup
- Unsweetened mawa / khoya – half cup
- Wheat flour – half cup and three tblsp
- Warm milk – half cup and three tblsp
- Baking powder – half tsp
- Egg replacer powder – three tsp
- Melted butter – two tblsp
- Oil – one-fourth cup
- Chopped cashews – few
Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. Grease the baking pan ( i used round pan) and use parchment paper to cover the bottom and sides of the pan.
In a bowl add melted butter, oil, sugar and mix it until smooth. Now add oats powder, wheat flour, almond powder, mawa and stir it. Now add egg replacer mixture ( to this powder add four tblsp of warm water and stir), baking powder and warm milk. Fold the batter.
Transfer into baking pan , tap it. On top sprinkle chopped cashew……..
Bake for 25 to 30 mins
A tip: Insert a toothpick into the brownie and if it comes out clean then the brownie is ready.
Serves four to five
