Last month I visited Hyderabad. And I had the most decadent chocolate chip cookies at the Karachi Bakery at Mozzamjahi Market in Abids. Since then I have been meaning to making a batch of my own chocolate cookies. And what can be more satisfying than presenting the first post of my blog with chocolate cookies.
Inspired by Eat St. hosted by James Cunningham I made my own version of Chocolate Diablo Cookies the other day. In spite of my being a novice in baking they turned out pretty good.

1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon instant coffee powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1 teaspoon red chilli powder
1 cup chocolate chips or chunks
Half cup roasted,crushed almonds
Whisk together the wet:
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup melted butter(room temperature)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons fresh squeezed ginger juice
On a greased cookie sheet press cookie dough balls in the shape of a large sized walnut half,flatten it slightly and sprinkle with rock salt and sugar. Bake at 375 degrees Celsius for approximately 10 minutes.Take the cookie tray out and tap the cookies. Bake for 5 more minutes and bring them out of the oven for them to cool. They should be nice and fudgy in the middle.
Yield: 14 big cookies
P.S.: I am a big fan of the Eat St. and religiously watch all the episodes.
