Eggless Ragi Cake recipe without oven

10:32 PM

This is a very simple & healthy recipe of Ragi (Finger Millet) Cake which is baked on nonstick Tawa (Griddle) by keeping  nonstick vessel on top.
You can bake the cake in oven for 30-35  min. at 180 C.

Keep non stick vessels like this on the gas stove with low flame.

Ingredients :
Ragi flour : 1  Cup
Dates : 3/4 Cup ( seedless or remove seeds.)
Dry fruits as per individual taste. ( I use Almonds, Walnut & seedless Black Raisins.)
Semolina ( fine Rava ) : 1/4 cup
Baking soda : 1/2tsp
Baking powder: 3/4 tsp
Yogurt ( plain Dahi ) : 1/2 Cup
Warm Milk : 3/4 cup
Vegetable oil or butter  : 1/4 cup
Desi Ghee or unsalted Butter can be used.
Vanilla Essence : 1 tsp or you can add Elaychi powder or Nutmeg Powder instead. 
Small pinch of Salt.
2 Tea spoon sugar or Gul (Jaggery) as per taste. If you want more sweetness you can add more Sugar as per taste. I have not added any sugar or jaggery for above measurements. Sweetness of dates is good enough.

Recipe :
1. Soak dates in warm milk for 1/2 hour. Dates become soft. Then grind to a smooth paste along with milk. Preserve 3-4 dates & chop them.

2. Add vegetable oil, Yogurt & grind again so that  mixture becomes homogeneous. 

3. Sieve Ragi flour, baking soda & baking powder. Add suji in the mixture.Add the above mixture in this flour. Fold it properly. Add chopped  Dates to the batter. Add Sugar or Jaggery if required.

4. Add dry fruits. ( Almonds, Walnut & seedless Black Raisins.) & flavour as you like. 

5.  Pour the mixture into the greased vessel and spread it evenly. Add a 1/2 tsp of Ghee on top so the cake won't stick to the Tava when you flip it if you are baking the cake on gas stove.

6. Keep the vessel  on Tava (Griddle) & cover it with lid . Keep on low flame.

7. Check on the cake with a knife or tooth pick after 10-15 min.  You should smell sweet goodness by this time! The cake should be golden brown by now. At that time flip it on the Tava (Griddle) which is kept below. Try to use non stick pan & non stick griddle for baking. Cake will come out nicely.

8. Turn off the flame after 2 mins as the Tava (Griddle) is already hot. Keep it for a few minutes until the lower side of the cake becomes golden brown .

9.Decorate with strawberry & oats.

10. Cut into pieces as you like & enjoy !!.

You can bake the cake in the oven at 180 c for 25-30 minutes.
