Preparation: Step-by-step recipe of spicy semolina cake

Take a bowl and in the bowl, mix semolina with curd, water, and all the spices. Keep this batter aside for 10 minutes.

Heat a pan and add flavorless oil. Once the oil is hot, add mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Add chopped onion and sauté it for 5 min. Further, add chopped beans, chopped bell pepper, and peas to onions and continue to sauté these vegetables for another 5 minutes.

Add sautéed vegetables along with grated carrot, ginger and green chillis to the batter and make a smooth batter of medium consistency.

Now add baking soda and transfer the mixture into a greased mold (I used a silicon mold to avoid any greasing). Sprinkle chili flakes and oregano on top of it. Keep this mold in a preheated oven at 180 °C for 20-25 min or till it passes the toothpick test.

Slice it once it comes to room temperature and serve it with your choice of sauce.

  • I made Savory muffins and put 1tsp soda as per recipe but it was bitter and badly smelling of soda …. why it happened

  • Madam….. your recipes are fabulous… am trying one by one… pl clarify the measurement difference of adding fresh instant yeast and active yeast(granules).. I have fresh yeast…

    • Dear Radha, Thanks for your appreciation. This motivates.
      Your comment is on a recipe where you do not need yeast. However, because you have asked, let me answer your question.
      For every 5gm of instant yeast, you should use 20gms of fresh yeast. Take it as a thumb rule.
      Hope this helps.
