Ingredients
  Bittersweet chocolate 5 Ounce, finely chopped
  Unsalted butter 9 Ounce (2 1/4 sticks)
  Sugar 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
  Cardamom 15 , seeded and ground
  All purpose flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Pecans 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs), coarsely chopped (lightly toasted)
  Unsalted butter 9 Ounce (at room temperature, 2 1/4 sticks)
  Eggs 4 Large
  Cardamom pods 15 , seeded and ground
Directions

Pre heat the oven to 350 º F

Butter a 9 x 12 inch baking pan, fit the bottom with a piece of baking paper and dust the inside of the pan with flour; tap the excess flour out and set aside.

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over simmering water or a microwave oven. Remove the chocolate from the heat and cool it slightly.

In a large mixing bowl, with a flexible rubber spatula beat the butter until smooth and creamy. Stir in the chocolate. Gradually add the eggs, then add the sugar and ground cardamom, followed by the flour and nuts, stirring using a whisk until all the ingredients are incorporated. Do not beat or aerate.

Scrape the batter into the baking pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. The top of the cake will be dry, but a knife inserted in the center will come out wet. Transfer the pan on a cooling rack and allow the brownies to cool for 30 minutes.

Run a knife around the edges of the pan and unmould the brownies, remove the baking paper, cut the brownies and serve.

Man it looks tasty. Keep us posted about your book - "Modern Indian Cooking". Knowing the complexities of Indian food, specially in preparation, I am hoping this will be of great help to an adventurous cook like me. I wonder if it will be about fusion of cuisines or maybe just quick Indian meals...
