Steamed Carrot & Cornmeal Cake

Cake with grated carrots and cornmeal prepared by steam cooking goes for quick,easy and super simple preparation.. This cake is eggfree, completely butterfree totally guilt free cake, you can enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea for your snacks or for breakfast, needless to say this cake tastes marvellous, super soft and wonderfully spongy..I combined both semolina and cornmeal for making this beautiful cake and we had a fabulous snacks with this steamed cake served along with cardamom flavoured tea..


1cup Roasted Yellow cornmeal
1/4cup Roasted semolina
1/4cup Grated carrots
1cup Yoghurt
1/2cup Sugar
1/4cup Milk
1/2tsp Baking powder
Oil for greasing the dish

Grease a round dish with enough oil and keep aside..In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together and whisk until everything gets well mixed and sugar gets dissolves..

Transfer the batter to the greased dish and steam cook in pressure cooker in high for 20-25minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean..put off the stove and keep aside..Let the cake gets cool completely..Invert the cake in a plate and slice as per ur need..

Enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee..
