Savoury Semolina Cake (Eggless)

                   A perfect breakfast or a tea time snack...Really healthy with veggies without any frying or even eggs...Having semolina in a slightly different way rather than the traditional upma.....Good for diabetic patients, kids (can avoid the green chilly for them) & I suppose all...since we love having this as an evening snack along with a hot cup of tea..My baby too loves it..

                   I actually got the idea of baking such a healthy cake from a wonderful blog called Tickling Palates of Radhika Subramanian .... May be the photo that was captured in that blog was what caught my attention...Thanks to Radhika...

              Thinking of a  diet, this food would definitely suit you....It will keep your tummy filled for a longer time too...Give it a try & let me know...



1. Rava/ Semolina/ Sooji - 1 cup
2. Yoghurt - 1 cup
3. Carrot (grated) - 5 tbsp (1 carrot)
4. Green Peas - 1/4 cup
5. Beans - 5-6
6. Ginger (grated) - 1 tsp
7. Green chilly - 1 (slit into two & finely chopped)
