Mix Veg Savory Cake/
Tea Time Snacks/
Kids Special
Hi Friends,
In these chilling days and frozen nights what we all need is some piping hot coffee and something to munch with it. Cake is not always a good idea as some times hot savory snack do the trick. On a chilling evening i was craving to bake something and i was totally  confused that what should i bake? Firstly i though to bake a chocolate cake then i thought its vry regular in my home sooooo why not a savory cake. Yes a savory cake. I immediately made list of ingredients (in my mind) and searched for the available ingredients and came delighted to know that i was having each and everything i was looking for. 

Please don't scared with the ingredients list as it seems very long but believe me most of the ingredients are available in any home bakers home. I went ahead with my imagination but the most difficult part was baking it. As i was doing everything by my own imagination it was the part where my imagination went wrong. Normally my cakes take hardly 30-35 minutes but this cake done in 50 minutes (why? even i don't know). Here are some points which i mentioned in my notes section. If you want to try this cake then pls read notes carefully. You can enjoy this cake warm or cold any way you like.

  1. For more airy and spongy cake you can use maida/APF instead of wheat or multi grain flour. My cake was bit dense.
  2. Veggies like peas/ mushroom are purely optional, you can add any of your favorite veggie like carrot etc.
  3. You can add chopped ginger, garlic and green chilly as per your liking.
  4. Don't overcook veggies, we just have to saute them a bit.
  5. You can add 3/4 cup of curd to make it more spongy and airy.
  6. Turmeric is purely optional as i want my cake bit yellowish i used it. You can skip it.
  7. You can use sesame seeds instead of pumpkin seeds. I used it to give it a crunch. Or you can skip both of things and make it plain.
Hope you will like it
