1 cup Maida (flour)

1 cup Powdered Sugar

1 cup Milk

1/4 cup Fine Rava (Semolina)

3/4 cup Butter

3/4 tsp Baking Powder


In a wide vessel add maida, sugar and milk.

Make it into nice paste without any lumps in it.

To the above batter add rava, butter and baking powder.

Mix it well and allow it to stand for about 10 minutes.

Grease and flour a pan if baking in an oven, otherwise just grease the pan with some butter and cook it in a steamer.

Pour the batter into the pan and bake in a pre-heated oven at 100 F for first 10 minutes, then raise temperature to 300 F and bake for another 15 minutes.

If using a steamer, first put 2 cups of water in the steamer and heat it to boiling, then add one cup of water, let it just come to boil, and put in the cake.

Keep on medium heat for 45 minutes.

However you cook the cake, a knife should come out clean, and it’s done.
