You have ushered the year 2014 with a bang, and are still reeling at the thought of going on a diet. Chef Kunal Kapur shares a Chocolate Souffle recipe for that one last indulgence
Chef Kunal Kapur loves to eat chocolate and work with it, too. “This recipe is inspired by a chocolate mousse made by an Italian chef that I had once tasted at a fancy restaurant. When it is cold outside, it’s extremely comforting to indulge yourself with some hot gooey moist chocolate. It is one of my favourite recipes as it can be made easily at home within a short span of time,” says Kapur.
