Chocolate cake

I wondered many times how a cake can be steamed..I tried many recipes and went wrong..This one i got through a site ( i dont remember it)…I did some changes in the recipe and it was yummy to have.The Shelf life of this cake is less,u must finish it in two days and u will do it.Because the cake is so moist, soft and yummy to have. Even though i dont like chocolate cake ,my husband loved it ,so my daughter too.The cake was over within a day.

I used an indian cooker without whistle…

Milk-1 cup

Sugar-1+ 1/2 cup

Mix A and Cook until the sugar melts (stir it nonstop)

Cool A completely

Add B to A and beat well

Sieve C for three -four times

Add C to A+B and fold them slowly and well mixed

Grease the baking pan with butter and flour

Pour the dough into the pan (only half level of the pan)

Place the pan in Indian cooker or Steamer (less water).

Make sure water cannot reach the baking pan.

Bake it for 40 mins in low flame

Check with knife if it is baked or not

If not, U can leave it some more mins (make sure u have enough water in the cooker)

Once it is baked,move it soon on wire rack to cool it down

i have grown up in my grand ma’s house, where i get put on lots of weight eating vegan food…It was tasty and lip smacking grand ma makes lots of vegetable dishes like kootu ,varuval, thuvayals and soups…I learnt cooking from her, she drills me well to do work.. this recipe is from her. Carrot and Curry leaves gives nice flavour, so dont omit both of them..
