Instructions
 

FOR CHIA MOUSSE

  • Powder the chia seeds in a spice grinder or a coffee grinder.
  • (I grind them in a mixer-grinder and they give perfect result)
  • Add everything in a mixing bowl and whisk everything together. OR
  • Put everything in a blender and blend it well (this is what I have started doing of late since it is easier and faster)
  • Transfer the contents in a bowl.
  • Cover with a lid or a cling wrap and place the bowl in a refrigerator for at least four hours but preferably (and recommended), overnight.

FOR TARTLETS

  • Turn on the oven and set it to heat at 180 degree C
  • Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, mix together all the ingredients and bring them together by rubbing them with your fingers.
  • Rub it well and ensure that there are no dry bits in the mixture.
  • The mixture will be pretty moist in texture by now.
  • Divide the mixture / dough equally among five tartlet pans and using your fingers or thumb pat it evenly in the pan. Pinch and crimp it against the sides as well, so that the thickness is even on the base and the sides. Remove any excess dough if required.
  • Place the tartlet pans on a baking sheet and carefully place it in the oven.
  • Bake the tartlet crust for 20 – 25 minutes, depending on the thermostat of your oven. (it took me 25 minutes) or till the crust turns golden
  • Carefully remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  • (Once cool, I placed them in the refrigerator for half an hour before I slipped off the outer ring)
  • Yield – 5 tartlets (of 3½ inch diameter)

TO ASSEMBLE

  • Once the crust is completely cool, fill them with the chocolate chia mousse.
  • (I load the shells with the mousse)
  • Scatter the almond slivers and cacao nibs over each tartlet and garnish with rose petals.
  • Slip off the mould ring and serve!
  • Refrigerate it again for an hour before serving it if you wish to (recommended though)

I believe in creating easy, simple yet flavourful and healthy recipes with some occasional indulgence. I call them the no-fuss recipes- making not much dent on time and mostly effortless which actually is my cooking motto. 

I abide by one advice that my Mom gave me while entrusting her culinary experiences to me, it is the love and passion with which one cooks the food that makes all the difference. So cook with passion and serve with love!
