Savoury Mini Cake Loaf

This is a healthy vegetarian dish which can be served as snacks.
Here I have used Amaranth Flour and Semolina for the base along with vegetables. I have used chickpea leaves as it's available in the market in this season but we can use spinach leaves instead of chickpea leaves
Amaranth Flour contains high source of Protein, Calcium and Fiber. It is ideal for gluten intolerent. It has high levels of the amino acid lysine which help your body to properly absorb calcium from the digestive tract. Here I have used Amaranth flour from Original Indian Table which I had received it as a prize in  a contest. 

1 cup Amaranth Flour
1 cup Fine Semolina
1 small Onion chopped
1 medium size Carrot chopped 
1 medium size Capsicum chopped 
1/2 cup Chickpea Leaves or Spinach chopped 
2 Fresh Green / Red Chillies chopped
1 tsp Garlic chopped
1/2 tsp Ginger chopped
2 1/2 tbsp Walnut chopped
Salt to taste
1 tsp Sugar 
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder 
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Soda Bicarbonate
1/4 cup Melted Ghee
500 ml Butter Milk

Mix together amaranth flour, semolina, salt, turmeric powder, sugar and baking powder. Mix it. Add the ghee. Now add the butter milk little at a time into the flour and whisk it. Whisk it properly so that no lumps remain and it forms into a thick batter. Add all the vegetables. Mix the batter well. Add the soda bicarbonate and mix it again. Here I have taken 3 mini loaf tin and greased it with ghee. Pour the batter into the pan until 3/4 of the pan is filled. Sprinkle the chopped walnut on top.
Bake it in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes. After 45 minutes, insert a tooth pick and check. If it comes out clean then it’s done. Remove it from the oven and let it cool a bit. Remove it from the tin, cool it further before slicing. Enjoy it with a cup of tea.

Eggless Ripe Jackfruit Coconut and Semolina Loaf Cake....

Eggless Ripe Jackfruit Coconut and Semolina Loaf Cake....

Ripe Jackfruit is one of my favourite fruit. The flesh of the jackfruit is starchy and fibrous and is a source of dietary fiber. It has a strong and distinct aroma. Many dishes are made from the ripe jackfruit... Since my daughter likes to carry tea time cakes to school... Today I added some jackfruit and coconut along with semolina into the cake.

1 cup All Purpose Flour
1 cup Fine Semolina
1 cup Caster Sugar
2 tbsp Dessicated Coconut
1 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Soda bicarbonate
3/4 cup Coconut Milk
4 tsp Curd
3/4  cup Olive oil
1/2 cup Jackfruit chopped

Take a mixing bowl. Add the curd, oil, coconut milk and sugar and jackfruit. In another bowl add flour, semolina, dessicated coconut, baking powder and soda bicarbonate. Mix it. Take a beater and beat the liquids till the sugar has dissolve. Gradually add half of the the dry ingredients and beat it. Add rest of the dry ingredients and beat it again. Pour the batter in a greased bread loaf tin. Tap the tin once. Sprinkle coconut on top. Bake it at 180 degrees celcius for 35 minutes in a preheated oven. Insert a toothpick to check. Cool it completely before cutting. Serve it with whip fresh cream or ice cream or just have it at tea time....
