Halloween is a great time to be a kid – so much candy! But if your child is allergic to nuts, many of the treats are off limits. I have developed this brownie recipe for my son who dislikes nuts of any kind. I use white chocolate instead, which gives it richness and a brownie-like appearance even without the nuts.
Nut-free Chocolate Brownies
One evening when my son returned from work he handed me a parcel saying his friend from Canada brought it for him, but actually it was for me. When I opened it I found a beautiful glass bottle of maple syrup, with a maple leaf engraved on it. Manoj had brought this for me seeing my cookery posts, and had this lovely thought of bringing this present.

I was totally new to maple syrup, and was surprised by its mild sweetness and woody flavour. I was not familiar with recipes using maple syrup and again Manoj sent an outline of a recipe that he uses. I found that the maple syrup is not strong enough to overpower the distinct flavour of the Indian sweet potato. I have standardised the recipe but I have not used dates or dried fruits as suggested by Manoj as my son does not like them.
