Baked Semolina Cake: A Savory Crisp Snack

Inspired by Anjum Anand’s (a UK based Celebrity Chef) show, I was tempted to try out her Semolina Cake. I’ve made a few additions/deletions in the ingredients so I will give you my version of it. I made a pretty flat cake; around 2 inches thick and the outcome was a crisp delicious snack. You can try out a thick loaf if you want to. It’s a quick fix recipe and though I tried it at a whim, luckily I had all the ingredients I wanted. I’ve added only peas to this dish, but feel free to add any vegetable including, potato, onions, beans, cabbage, etc. Ingredients:

  •  1 cup semolina (rava)
  •  2 tbsp curd/yoghurt
  •   2 tbsp fresh green peas
  •  1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
  •  1 tsp red chili powder
  •  Salt
  •  2 pinch turmeric powder
  •  A little water
  •  1 tsp mustard seeds
  •  1 tsp cumin seeds
  •  1 tsp sesame seeds
  •  1 tbsp oil
  •  ½ tsp baking powder

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 200C
  •  In a large bowl, mix together the semolina, curd, peas, ginger-garlic paste, chili powder, turmeric and salt to make a thick batter.
  •  Add some water and stir well
  •  Heat some oil in a pan and add the mustard, cumin and sesame seeds till they splutter
  •  Add this to the batter and stir well
  •  Add baking powder and again mix thoroughly
  •  Grease a baking dish with some oil/ghee and pour the batter into it
  •  Bake for 30 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean
  •  Remove it from the oven and serve warm with chutney

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Serves: 3
