Savory Semolina Cake(Eggless)

Savory cakes,anyone?? This was the first time I tried a savory cake,just wished to cut down the sugar intake in our daily menu and was craving for some dhokla,and am happy that I ended making this one. This happened to be the best healthy cake.There is no fat,no sugar and it tastes similar to our Indian savory cake,'Dhokla' as it has the spice flavors similar in that.You can sneak in your veggies and the cake is soft and filling.Enjoy making this cake at home,perfect for diabetics too!!


Ingredients
semolina 1cup
carrot 1/2 cup
peas 1/2 cup
ginger 1" grated
cilantro 3-4
green chillies 2-3chopped fine
yogurt 1/2 cup thick
water 2-3 tbsp
salt 1/4 tsp(increase as per taste buds)
sugar 1tsp(optional;but good)
baking soda 1/2 tsp
oil 2-3tbsp
for tempering
sesame seeds 1/2 tsp +1/2tsp
cumin seeds 3/4 tsp
mustard seeds 1 tsp


Method
  • Heat oil in a pan ,splutter mustard seeds,cumin seeds and sesame seeds.Put off flame and let it cool.
  • Combine the semolina,salt,sugar,yogurt.Mix well,add the grated carrot,peas,grated ginger,chopped cilantro,chopped fine green chillies.Combine and add the tempering,mix well.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a bread loaf pan with parchment paper.Spray the sides with oil/butter.
  • Add the baking soda in the batter,mix well and immediately pour in  the bread loaf pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 27-30 minutes.Mine was done at 28 mins.
  • Cool on wire rack and serve warm with ketchup or just like that !!

Servings~ 3-4 adults

NOTES
* The spices can be modified as per each one's taste buds.
* You can also add your desired veggies.
* Adding sugar is optional,balances the salty flavor slightly.
* Add baking soda just before pouring it in the pan,otherwise the cake may not rise well.

Pavithra R said... Best Blogger Tips

OMG, I'm a sucker for anything that is healthy!! And if there is no sugar & no fat, then I'm all in.
I also love the sesame seed over the Savory cakes. It looks just awesome!!
Also it is nice to see there is no need to add Besan in the mixture, still it came out just right.
Great invention indeed, Julie.
Dhokla is also my favorite, although I cannot eat that everyday because of Besan content!!
