I remember having bookmarked this recipe from as soon as I saw it posted in a food group on Facebook. When my older son suddenly had the urge of eating something chocolatey almost as soon as he thought of it I couldn’t think of a better dessert to try out. It turned out really good. I altered the recipe with whatever ingredients I had at home and my son thought it was a good idea to eat it with custard and he did just that!

This is what you’ll need

For the dumplings

Bread: 4 slices (few day old bread works just right)

Cashew nut bits: 1tbsp

Bread crumbs: For coating

Icing sugar: For dusting

Oil for frying

For the sugar syrup

Sugar: 4tbsp

Water: 1/4cup

For the chocolate sauce

Unsweetned cocoa powder: 1tbsp

Sugar: 3tbsp

Water: 1/4 cup

Cornflour: 1tsp

Let’s get cooking

1. Prepare the sugar syrup with the ingredients listed under sugar syrup. Once the sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a boil remove from flame and keep aside.

2. Prepare the chocolate sauce by mixing all the ingredients except cornflour in a pan. Bring mixture comes to a boil. Add the cornflour mixing well taking care that no lumps are formed. Let the sauce thicken. Keep aside.

3. Roughly tear the bread slices into pieces. Mix the cashew nut bits and the sugar syrup. Knead well to a dough. If too dry add a little water.

4. Shape into small dumplings, coat with breadcrumbs and deep fry until golden brown.

5. Serve pouring chocolate sauce over them and drizzle with icing sugar.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 15 minutes

Serves: 3-4

* This can be made with brown bread too, though I used white bread.
