3Today we are celebrating 50th post of this blog. I have received lots of blessings and love from my readers and am truly grateful for that.God has helped me reach this milestone when I thought “What can I post that people won’t already know”, “I am a novice with photography and it won’t appeal to readers” and “How in the world will I manage my time with a little kid around”. But all thanks beautiful readers like you who have appreciated my efforts. Hold my hands as I walk food journey and together we’ll create magic.

So today’s post is a dessert post. Since mangoes are in season I wanted to try out this recipe.


Semolina/Rava – 1 cup

Thick Mango Puree – 1 cup

Sugar – 1 cup

Oil – 1/4 cup

Cardamom Powder – 1/2 tsp

Baking Powder – 3/4 tsp

Nuts of your choice


  1. Chop the nuts of your choice and keep aside.
  2. Powder the sugar and keep aside.
  3. Grease your pan with butter or oil nicely so the cake comes off easily.
  4. In a bowl take rava.
  5. Add powdered sugar, cardamom powder, baking powder, nuts Β and mix well.
  6. Add oil and mix well.
  7. Add the mango puree and mix well so no lumps are formed. Let it sit for 15 minutes.
  8. After 15 minutes pour the batter into greased pan.
  9. Garnish with chopped nuts.
  10. Take the pressure cooker. Remove the gasket and the whistle. Inside place the cooker stand to give height.
  11. Pre-heat the pressure cooker on high heat for 5 minutes without lid.
  12. After 5 minutes, reduce the flame to low and place the pan slowly on the cooker stand. Be careful and use a tong to place and take the pan as the cooker will be very hot.
  13. Close the lid and let it bake for 20 minutes on low heat.
  14. After 20 minutes open the lid and check if the cake is cooked. Insert a tooth pick or knife and if it comes clean then your cake is cooked. Else cook it further.
  15. Once cooked take the cake out and let it cool down completely. C
  16. Cut in your desired shape and enjoy.
