A spicy, luscious take on the classic chilled chocolate pudding.

Hari says

I made this for one of my dinner parties just because I wanted chocolate but I wanted to make it feel a bit more Indian. The chilli can be very subtle or you can turn it up a touch and add some dried chilli flakes too and give it a bit more of a bite. Another little cheat for this dish is that you can just use dark chilli chocolate - works just as well.

On a recent visit to Amsterdam I discovered chilli liquor and this recipe seems like the ideal dish to introduce this to. Watch this space as I may have a new pud to add very soon!

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • 1 dried red chilli (plus a pinch of chilli flakes for more heat)
  • 285ml single cream
  • 200g dark chocolate (minimum 70% cocoa solids)
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 50ml brandy
  • 20g unsalted butter, softened


  1. Place the chilli and cream into a small, heavy-based pan and heat until the mixture is just about to come to the boil. Take off the heat, then remove and discard the chilli.
  2. Break the chocolate into pieces and add to the hot cream, stirring until melted and smooth.
  3. Allow to cool, then add the whisked egg yolks, brandy and butter and lightly whisk to combine with chocolate mixture. Stir in the butter until melted.
  4. Pour the mixture into four small cups and chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours before serving. 

Top Tip

    The recipe says "serves 4". How big are the dishes? Could I get 8 shot glasses out of the mixture?
    Thanks x

    Making these today and using Grand Marnier for the brandy. Orange and chocolate usually go well together, so this should work. :)
