How to make Chili cake

  1. Deseed the cardamoms meant for the cake.Take the seeds out and pound them. Do not throw away the husk as they will be required later.
  2. Melt the chocolate, then add the crushed cardamom seeds and cool the whole thing. Mix in the nuts, soft butter, sugar, chili powder and flour.
  3. Beat the egg yolks and add it to the mixture. Also add in the stiffly beaten egg whites. Pour this mixture in a baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for about 55 minutes.
  4. Prepare the syrup while the cake is baking. Mix together water, sugar and cardamom pods and bring to boil.
  5. Here add in the cardamom husks as they will provide some fragrance to the syrup. Let this cook till a syrupy texture is formed.
  6. Once the cake is done take it out and let it cool a bit. Pour the syrup on the cake while it is still warm.
  7. Sit back and enjoy the gooey, buttery, tangy hot cake.
