Microwave pista chocolate brownie | Easy 5 minute chocolate brownie in microwave

The mere mention of brownies makes my mouth watering .Who doesnt like brownies ?? 

Todays recipe is microwave chocolate pistachio brownie which is an instant , easy and eggless brownie .

Conventionally pistachio are added in brownies.I gave it a twist by replacing  walnuts with pista 

A rich, dark chocolate brownie which is ideal for a tea party or even as a dessert if served with a dollop of vanilla ice-cream.
