  1. Pre-heat the oven at 350 degrees F or 170 degrees C. Grease the cake tin with little ghee and then dust with little flour and keep it ready
  2. Take the milk and rava in a mixing bowl and stir them well and keep it aside for 10 minutes. In another mixing bowl, take the dry ingredients such as all purpose flour, baking powder, baking salt, salt and sugar and mix well so that all are well combined

  3. After 10 minutes, add the dry ingredients little by little to the milk+rava mixture and mix well. The cake batter should be like a pouring consistency. If the batter is so thick, add little water and make it pourable. Add butter to the cake batter and mix well

  4. Now, add vanilla essence and chopped nuts and fold everything together gently. 

  5. Pour the cake batter to the greased cake tin and gently pat to spread it evenly. Put the cake tin in the pre-heated oven and bake it for 30 minutes or till the skewer/tooth pick comes out clean. After 30 minutes, take the cake tin out and place it in a cooling rack and allow it to completely cool off

  6. After the cake is cooled off, slowly run through the knife on the edges of the cake and take the cake out of the tin gently. We can just flip the cake tin on another plate to gently take the cake out. Cut the cake into pieces either square or pie shaped pieces and plate it in serving plate

  7. The yummy and spongy Eggless Semolina Cake is now ready to serve!

does this taste similar to kesari?

Please let me know how we can improvise it to make it in a pressure cooker.

Do you have any recipe for frosting the cake thanks

Kesari taste is entirely different from this cake

Hi, I will post the pressure cooker method soon

what kind of butter is uses. is it salted or unsalted. can i use pure cow ghee. please advice


Hi, I have used unsalted buter,but we can surely alternate that with pure cow ghee too.

Can I replace butter with sunflower oil or corn oil? How much amount?

Yes you can very well replace with oil. Use the same quantity of butter

Y did the sooji not cook or puff up entirely

Great recipe thanks, the whole family enjoyed eating it, I made it with kids. I didn't have walnuts so I added sultanas/cashews, however id like to try with nuts as per recipe. Great to find a semolina cake that doesn't contain loads of sugar/syrup

how do i make this in chocolate flavour

Could you please suggest an alternate to "Baking Salt", I don't seem to find it in stores...

Baking salt will be named as "Baking Soda" or "Bi Carbonate of Soda. You can check this link
