Method 

 

Grind the oats with flax seed powder. If you have fresh peas boil them. I have used frozen.

In a large bowl mix semolina or suji, oats and flax seed powder, curd, salt, juice of 1/2 lemon, turmeric powder, cumin powder, shredded coconut, green peas, grated ginger, finely chopped green chilli and cilantro. Mix well. Add water as require. Don’t make it runny. Batter should be thick.

Heat oil in a pan. Add rai or mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Let them crackle. Add chopped curry leaves and switch off the flame.Mix it in the batter.

Preheat the oven at 180°.

Just before baking add the baking powder and soda. Give a good stir and pour in a loaf pan or any baking pan. You can use muffin pan too. If you are using muffins pan or cup cake moulds fill them 3/4.

Bake at 180° for 30-40 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean. Every oven takes different time. Check after 30 minutes. If you are using muffins pan or moulds check after 20 minutes.

Serve hot or in room temperature with any sauce or chutney.

You can use any spices or flavours of your choice.

If you have idli podi or gun powder just add 2-3 tablespoon and omit the green chilli. You will get a spicy hot savoury cake.

And if your kids  like pizza flavour. Omit the cumin seeds, mustard seeds and curry leaves. Fry 2 chopped onions and some minced garlic in the oil. Add it in the batter with 2-3 tablespoon pizza sauce, grated cheese and 2 tablespoon oregano or mixed herb. Add chill sauce or schezwan sauce if you  like it hot. And your pizza flavoured savoury cake is ready.

Add 1-2 beaten egg in the batter if you like. You can use any vegetables of your choice like mushrooms, olive, jalapeno, bell peppers etc.

You can make it at night for next day breakfast or for lunch box. Yes, its  a great tiffin option too.

Enjoy it as breakfast or tea time snacks.

Share with me your favourite flavour. I would love to hear from you.

Happy baking 😀

Batter Up With Sujata

I am Sujata Roy. A homemaker, a doting mother to two beautiful grown up children, a blogger, a passionate cook and lastly a foodie. Experimenting in the kitchen is what I love and enjoy doing the most. Specially experimenting with vegetarian dishes and egg-less cakes and cookies is what interests me more. My loved ones are fond of vegetarian cuisines, so I have them in my mind whenever I dish out a new recipe. However, I do not limit my experimental cooking to vegetarian recipes only, non-vegetarian recipe ideas are also dished out. Thank you for visiting my blog. Happy Cooking!
