Sometimes, all you need is a crunchy, fudgy, and gooey piece of brownie. Or… 5 of them!
Of all the things we, at LF, take seriously, a perfect brownie is one at the top. The definition of the perfect brownie, though, might vary from person to person. While I prefer mine with a hint of chilli inside and a crackly top, my colleague, on the other hand, loves hers bursting with chocolate.
As part of our #31DaysofBaking campaign, we bring to you a list of offbeat yet irresistibly delicious brownies by LF chefs. Think chilli chocolate, popcorn, and more…
1) Chilli Chocolate Brownies
These chilli chocolate brownies have an indulgent dark chocolate flavour without the intense sweetness. Chef Ripudaman Handa adds a pinch or two of red chilli powder to balance out the sweetness of the dessert and give its overall flavour a new dimension. He finishes it off with a few drizzles of chocolate and orange-carrot sauce.

2) Brownies with Fudge and Salt
You can’t not make an extra batch of these decadent, super flavourful chocolate brownies with an insanely rich and fudgy texture. They get a little extra flavour from a sprinkling of sea salt. Chef Gautam Mehrishi likes to serve them warm, garnished with a few leaves of mint.
3) Banana Brownies

4) Popcorn Brownies
Chef Mehrishi loads up his brownies with dark chocolate chunks, white chocolate chips, and freshly made popcorn. Yes, you read it right! He believes freshly popped corn makes for a fun addition to the usual chocolate brownie recipe.

On the third season of 3 Course with Pankaj, chef Pankaj Bhadouria went on to reimagine classic international desserts with local Indian ingredients. This mandua brownie recipe is an ode to a humble millet from Uttarakhand and is flavoured with vanilla essence and chocolate. People following a vegan or gluten-free diet, this brownie recipe must be your go-to when dessert cravings knock at your door!
