Spicy Savoury Semolina Cake
A happy Monday everyone!! So all set for a eventful week ahead? Well, I sure am..the Foodie Monday Bloghop keeps me miles away from the dreaded Monday blues. I look forward to a bright, cheerful Monday. Well this is the 58 th Foodie Monday Bloghop and we decided on the theme Teatime Savouries.
A bunch of simple savoury recipes are good to have at hand so that we can always make quick and easy snacks for teatime, for lunchbox, for after school tummy fillers etc. When the kids are back home hungry or just need a little something to tide them over these savoury and healthy snack recipes are just the ticket! Savoury scones, muffins, pikelets, pies, sandwiches …..there are tons of recipes to choose from.
For this Bloghop I settled down for a Indianised savoury semolina loaf cake with veggies which I have been baking quite often as my kids love it and when you are famished, a slice with a cup of tea keeps you satiated for the next 2 hours. This recipe has been inspired from Anjum Anands cook book which was a gift from a friend years back. I have tweaked the recipe by making it a little spicy by adding dry masalas which suits our tastebuds.
Loads of veggies and no butter or oil (1 tbsp for the seasoning) makes it extremely healthy and guilt free. This cake is spongy and a little crispy on the edges. I have tried different versions of this cake ….with spinach and corn and some English herbs giving it a continental makeover and sometimes with curry leaves and sambar powder to give a South Indian feel. So play around with combos keeping the basic ingredients same and enjoy a slice dipped in ketchup or green chutney with your cuppa of tea.
