Steamed Banana Cake in Pressure Cooker

Cake has been all time my family's favorite.This cake is steamed n was made as a snack.And it turned out to be real good and healthy recipe for kids.My kids are reluctant to eat the over ripe bananas and this was the easiest way to finish them off without even the children knowing it.

rice powder 1 cup
jaggery 1/2 cup
banana 2 mashed
baking soda 1tsp
raisins and cashew 1/4 cup
cumin powder 1tsp

Soak the jaggery in half a cup of water and drain the impurities.
Mix the rice powder ,mashed bananas,baking soda.
Add the cumin powder and raisins,cashew.
Keep aside for 10 mts.
Pour it in a idli pan or a cake pan after oiling and and garnish with cashews.Steam in a pressure cooker.(without whistle)/idli cooker for 20mts.
Check if it is done with a tooth pick in the centre (should come out clean)
Remove from stove ,cool it completely.
Cut into pieces and ready to serve.

Thanx Sharada for visiting my space..You can use papaya,only thing is first mash up the papaya very well n then add to the rice flour or else the consistency may thin up n may not work out good!!Banana is a bit thicker than the papaya,I hope cleared it right..if anything els pls clarify dear..n feel free to ask.
