This is an OIL FREE savoury cake which will please everyone!! It is light and can be eaten cold, on its own or with any chutney of your choice. For all of you who dont want oil in your food..this cake is just for you! It is steamed instead of baked and quite easy to make. I have flavoured it my way but you can always play around with the layers and flavours.
1 cup of fine semolina(sooji)
3 cups of sour yoghurt
1/2 cup of water
salt to taste
3 teaspoons of eno fruit salt
FOR THE GREEN FLAVOR
1/2 cup of green chutney made by grinding coriander leaves, green chillies (or capsicum) ginger garlic
FOR THE YELLOW FLAVOR
1 teaspoon of NITU DIDIS turneric powder
FOR THE RED FLAVOR
1/4 cup of thick tomato paste
mix the semolina(sooji) with the yoghurt, water and the salt to a fine paste. If it is too thick add a little bit of water. Keep it aside for about 2 hours. Divide the batter into 3 parts. Flavor each part acording to the recipe. Keep a steamer with water to heat. Take a metal bowl and line it with foil paper. Mix one part of the batter with 1 teaspoon eno fruit salt and put it in the metal bowl and cover it and steam it. When its done (it should not be moist to the touch..means its ready) mix the other part of the batter with the eno fruit salt and pour it on top of the steamed layer and steam it again. Repeat for the 3rd batter . When the last batch of batter is done cool the cake. Run a sharp knife throughout the cake to loosen it. Turn it on a plate , cut and serve with chutney of your choice.
NITU DIDI TIP: You can flavor this the way you like, with pureed spinach, pureed carrots, pureed beetroot….. each time you make this you can have a combination of different flavors and textures 🙂
