  • 350 gm White Chocolate you can use chocolate bar or chips
  • 2 tbsp Almonds flakes
  • tbsp Pistachio chopped
  • tsp Fennel Seeds
  • tsp Poppy Seeds
  • tbsp Rose Petals crushed
  • 1 tsp Cardamom Powder
  • ½ tsp Black Pepper crushed


  • Scrap the chocolate if you are using chocolate bar. Line a 10′ X 8’ tray with grease proof paper or parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Place the chocolate in the top of a double boiler and melt it over simmering heat.
  • Once the chocolate begins to melt around the edges, give it a gentle stir (I use spatula) and keep heating it.
  • Stir again after a minute to check if the chocolate has completely melted.
  • Add cardamom powder and crushed black pepper (start by adding ¼th teaspoon of both). Stir it well.
  • Taste the chocolate and if you feel the need for adding more of either of the ingredients (i.e. the pepper and cardamom), add more, little by little till you have the desired result.
  • Once the chocolate has completely melted remove it carefully from the double boiler.
  • Keep stirring the chocolate for about half a minute and then pour it over the lined tray.
  • Spread it around evenly. Sprinkle evenly with poppy seeds and fennel seeds. Next sprinkle over the rose petals and then almonds and pistachio.
  • Allow the chocolate to cool down completely and then place it in the refrigerator till it sets.
  • Break the chocolate in shards or slice them evenly using a sharp knife and serve. Enjoy!

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!
