Eggless Chocolate Mousse

When I was cooking like mad and clicking, I was wondering why am I doing this. I have always been telling before that my list of drafts are just increasing so much that I am not able to control it. Though I always ensure that I finish my older stock first before moving in to the newer recipes, but still sometimes you can’t stop yourself from bringing in a newer post in front. Now I realize how much my backlog is helping me. It has been almost a month since I have cooked anything serious. My kitchen is not yet ready and I don’t see it being done at least for another two weeks. I have an induction now which I use for making my tea, coffee and instant stuff like making omelette or frying sausages, nothing more than that. I would love to venture into microwave cooking and now I am seriously thinking on that lines. Let me see till where I will go on with this. Till then, I will continue to be with all of you with my drafts. πŸ™‚


I love mousse, though it is not something I have tried at home before. The thought of raw eggs puts me off, though whenever I see mousse served at a buffet, it becomes a part of my platter!!! This was just an attempt to make some mousse with custard and I was not disappointed. Though I wouldn’t term it as “the mousse” – mousse in its original form is the best, of course! – I loved the texture and the feel and more than that, it’s ability of keep my chocolate-loving devil at rest!!! Hehe…
