Wet Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Curd¬† whisked
  • 1/2 cup Oil (any flavorless oil)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla essence


  • 7 Inch cake tin



  1. Grease a 7 inch cake tin with ghee or oil. Grease it well on all the corners. Dust flour or you can place a parchment paper.

  2. Pre-heat oven at 180 degree C for 10 mins. I am using Morphy Richard Oven.

  2. Add  1/2 cup of any flavorless oil and mix until well combined. Keep this aside.

  3. Sieve together wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

  4. Add a tsp of vanilla essence and cinnamon powder to the jaggery mixture and mix well.

  5. Add the flour in two batches and mix until combined. Do not over mix.

  6. Add 4 tbsp of milk (milk should be at room temperature) and mix until combined.

  7. You can add nuts and raisins after dusting it with flour to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the pan.

  8. Transfer the mixture to the greased tray. Gently tap the tin to remove air bubbles.

  9. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degree C for 30 minutes or until done. Keep it in the middle rack and on baking mode. Timings changes depending on the oven.
