Savoury Semolina Cake Recipe – Tea Time Spicy Sooji Cake Recipe – Rava Cake with step wise pictures.
Super delicious savoury semolina cake which is best for breakfast. This is a spicy version of cake and taste so yummy with a cup of chai.
I have been eyeing on this recipe for quite sometime now. This is Anjum Anand’s recipe and it is too good. If you try your hands on it you will never regret it.
This cake is super easy to make and it taste so yummy. It is so easy to make and it has lots of veggies in them so it is very healthy. I enjoyed it so much for breakfast with a cup of tea.
The cake is made with sooji, yogurt and veggies. The seasoning which you add gives lots of flavour to the cake. The yogurt added in this cake keeps it incredibly soft and moist.
The cake tasted very similar to our sooji upma. But i loved the sweet and savoury taste of it.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
