Savory Semolina Cake

A nutritious and healthy Indian style savory snack or breakfast loaded with aroma. This savory semolina cake is simple to put together with lots of vegetable and no butter or egg. The color comes from spices and topping of sesame seeds gives crunchiness. This easy savory cake adapted from Anjum Anand's cookbook. I would recommend  having it in evening with a cup of tea or coffee.

Ingredients :

Semolina - 1 cup
Yogurt - 1 cup
Vegetable - 1 cup (Carrot, beans)
Onion - 1 big
Frozen peas - 1 handful
Ginger - 1 tsp, grated
Green chilli - 1, chopped
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
Sugar - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves - a handful
Salt to taste
White sesame seeds - 1 tsp, for sprinkling 

For Seasoning ~

Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp

Method :

Preheat the oven into 200ÂșC. 

Chop carrot, beans, green chili and onion. 

In a mixing bowl pour in semolina, yogurt and water, mix well.

Heat oil in a pan add cumin seeds and mustard seeds when it start to splutter and cumin is aromatic then add curry leaves, chopped onion, vegetable, frozen peas, spices and cook for 3-5 minutes.

Now add this mixture into batter and add baking soda, stir it well. Immediately transfer this mixture into loaf pan and Sprinkle over sesame seeds. Bake in the preheat oven for 25-30 minutes.

The cake is ready when a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean and the edges are crisp. Leave the cake to cool in the tin.

When cooled take it out of the tin and slice them. Serve hot.........
