Spicy Savoury Cake

My dad got fed up of eating cakes. Strawberry, vanilla, chocolate, brownie, choco lava, coconut cake etc, you name it i have made it after i bought the electric whisker last month. He said that he wouldn’t eat any more cakes. But mom, is not yet satiated. As for me, i don’t care what i bake, i want to bake. So.. this is what that resulted.. It was quick to make. Got ready in under 10 minutes. with a little bit of personalisation i think this will be a very nice evening snack to have with with tea.


Spicy savoury cake, dhokla, indian cake, spicy,


  1. 2 eggs
  2. 3/4th cup whole wheat flour (you can use any flour except besan)
  3. 1/2 cup oil
  4. 1/2 milk
  5. salt
  6. 1/2 tsp baking powder
  7. Spices- jeera powder, Dhania (coriander seed) powder, chilli powder, anyother masala  – just pinch
  8. chopped corriander leaves
  9. chopped green chillis
  10. creativity 🙂


  1. Beat eggs till they double in volume. Then slowly drizzle in the oil while beating continuously. The consistency of the resultant mixture should be really thick.
  2. Sieve together the flour, salt, baking powder and  spices.
  3. Fold the flour mixture into the egg mixture.
  4. Use the milk to adjust the consistency.
  5. oil and dust a microwaveable dish and pour in the mixture.
  6. microwave for 4 minutes.
  7. Let it stand for 5 minutes.
  8. Serve with tomato ketchup or green chutney.

This is actually a modification of Nita Mehta’s Vanilla Cake.
