Tricolour Savory Cake 

Tricolour savory semolina loaf cake. A cake with three different flavours, taste and colours. 
We are celebrating 70th Independence Day of our country today. India is a country with different language, religion and culture. Its a proud moment for every Indian. 

National flag of India is a national symbol. It is designed using three different colors . In the top is saffron which indicates the strength and courage of the country, White colour is in the middle which indicates peace and truth with navy blue Ashoka  Chakra, means wheel of law. And the last green colour indicates the fertility, growth and auspiciousness of the land. 

To celebrate this day I have made this tricolour savory cake. A very delicious and easy to make savory loaf cake. You can serve it as a snack with tea or coffee. Or pack in lunch box. I have made it without onion garlic. But you can use onion garlic too if you like.

Grind chopped tomatoes and chilli. If you don’t want to use red chilli. You can use red chilli powder according to your spice tolerance. Heat 1/2 tablespoon oil in a nonstick pan again. Add rai and let it splutter. Add the tomato paste. Saute till the mixture dried up.

Now add soda and baking powder in the Semolina/suji batter. If you are using onions and garlic, add them too. You can add any spices of your choice like garam masala, chaat masala or curry powder etc. Divide the batter in three different bowls.

Add the coriander, peas paste in one bowl and mix well

Grease a loaf pan with oil or butter. Pour the green batter first. Make a layer of it. Label with a spoon. 

Now spread the white coconut batter over it. Label with a spoon. 

Spread the orange tomato batter over it. 

sprinkle some sesame seeds over it.
 

Preheat the oven at 180° for 10 minutes. Bake the loaf for 30 – 35 minutes. Check with a toothpick. Insert a toothpick in the middle. If its comes out clean its ready.

Let it cool on a wire rack. You can serve it hot too. 

Serve with any chutney or sauce. But I don’t need any chutney or sauce with it. Its spicy and delicious. 

Enjoy with tea or coffee as a snack.
