  Making this egg-less chocolate Swiss roll was on my to- do list from a long time. I had seen the recipe long back on a cookery show on television. The easy and quick recipe tempted me to try them out. So when Preethi di (our fellow blogger Preethi Prasad of Preethi'sCuisine ) chose fire less cooking as a theme for this week for our Foodie Monday Bloghop , with no doubt i knew i had to make these no bake Chocolate Swiss roll. The dish was a hit at my place..and my son Chinmay who has a sweet tooth , enjoyed every bit of this treat :)

Serves: Around 15 roundels 

  • 200 grams of any tea biscuits ( i have used whole wheat digestive biscuits)
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/4 cup Chocolate Syrup ( I have used homemade)
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder

  3. Now add the chocolate syrup and mix well. 

  4. Add milk little by little to knead the mixture into a soft dough. Keep aside.

  5. In another bowl , take the desiccated coconut. Add powdered sugar and remaining one teaspoon butter to it . Flavor it with cardamom powder. Mix well. Our filling for the Swiss roll is ready.

  6. Grease a parchment paper with little ghee .

  7.  Roll out the chocolate dough using a rolling pin. Try to shape roughly into a square.

  8. Spread the desiccated coconut mixture evenly over it. Press it with a spatula , so that the filling sticks well to the rolled out chocolate base.
