We used to make this dark chocolate souffle in my hotel in Dubai and serve it in our Latin American restaurant Pachanga, and 5 years and several menu changes later this was one item which had stood the test f time. Never fails to please or your money back!!

- Grease ramekins with some melted butter and line with sugar, just enough to coat the bottom and sides of the ramekins.
- Separate egg yolks and whites.
- Melt chocolate and butter over a double boiler

- Sieve cornflour and cocoa powder together
- Add cornflour and cocoa mix to chocolate mix.
- Whisk egg whites with 30 gm sugar till stiff .
- Mix egg yolk mix and chocolate mix.
- Fold in egg whites, a little at a time, to ensure we do not lose too much volume.
