Grease and line the base and grease the sides of a 25 cm springform tin.
Place hazelnuts on a dry baking tray and roast in a 180 °C oven for about 25 minutes, until the skins are dark.
Remove nuts from oven and rub between two dishcloths to remove skins.
Place roasted hazelnuts, almonds and 80 g sugar in a food processor and blend until nuts are finely ground. Place in a bowl.
Put chocolate and 80 g sugar in the processor and process for about 30 seconds, until the chocolate is finely ground.
Stir into the nut mixture.

In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks and remaining sugar until the mixture leaves a ribbon when the beaters are lifted.
Beat in almond essence, fold in chocolate-nut mixture and stir in the butter and chillies.
In a clean bowl beat egg whites and salt until stiff and fold into the chocolate-nut mixture in two stages.
Pour into the prepared baking tin and bake for about 45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Cool completely. Sift icing sugar over and serve on its own or with cream or ice cream.
