If you follow Sonam Kapoor on Instagram, you know that she is a self-proclaimed dessert person. In fact, she is as obsessed with desserts as she is with fashion. Vegan dark chocolate with hazelnuts is one staple item that is found in her fridge at any given point of time. And through her IG we are often led into a virtual gastronomical journey filled with a variety of food ranging from the scrumptious Thai curry to kurmura bhel to delectable macaroons often made by her BFF, Pooja Dhingra.
If you thought the lockdown down was going to deprive Sonam Kapoor of her sweet tooth cravings you are wrong. She has productively used this period to let out her inner baker/cook and has kept us to date with her royal Asian feasts, Italian treats, walnut cakes, and even her chocolate cookies. And if you were wondering if they were good, her mother-in-law and BFF & baker friend Pooja Dhingra have confirmed that she's an excellent baker and a good cook. Lucky for us, Sonam also posted her step by step recipe for delicious vegan chocolate chip cookies.
Take a look!

Step 2: To this add 15 gms sugar-free raw cacao powder.
Step 3: Add in 1/4 tsp. baking powder, 1/2 tsp. baking soda, and 1/2 tsp. sea salt. Whisk it well to form a dry mixture.
