FeaturedEggless Biscuit Cake – Easy Recipe to Try During Corona Lockdown

Hey guys! This is Anjali, the new author of this blog. I have come here to share my way of enjoying the lockdown period due to corona and cooperating the country to overcome this critical phase.
I know you all guys are getting bored during this time but don’t worry I have a solution for this. You just have to recognize your latent creativity and use this for your entertainment.
I too tried….
These days I just realized that I am enjoying cooking and so diverted my mind and tried my creativity there.
Since, I am a working woman I rarely get time to try my passion but now I’ve got a chance to try my hands in cooking shooking.
I tried many recipes for the first time and one of such is the Biscuit Cake. Yaaa!! You heard right. I know most of you guys will start thinking… Cake!!! What’s the big deal or isme kaun si nayi baat hai??.. But guys… This is a big thing for me…. Because I have made it for the first time and that too without the help of anyone and only with the guidance of my dear would be saasu maa 😀which makes it unique in itself.

So, here’s the recipe to make biscuit cake.

Ingredients to make the cake:

• 3 packets of Bourbon biscuits
• 5-6 spoons of sugar
• Less than half small bowl olive oil/refine/ghee/melted butter
• Half small bowl milk
• 1small spoon baking powder, 1 small spoon baking soda
• 1 pinch table salt
• ½ spoon vinegar
• Refine oil for Greesing the pressure cooker.
• Parchment paper/ white paper
• Maida for base layering

Method


Step 1:The first thing u have to do is…. Just cut a parchment paper according to the size of the base of your pressure cooker. Since I have no container and it is not possible to buy it in the current scenario, that’s why I baked in the cooker directly. Now, grease the cooker completely using refine/butter/ghee and place the parchment paper/white paper in the base of your cooker and grease it too. Now sprinkle maida on the base and ensure that it is minimum of 2-3mm in thickness.


Step 2: Make a powder of three packs (120 grams each) bourbon biscuits using grinder.


Step 3: Now make a fine powder of 6 table spoons of sugar and then add 1 pinch of salt, less than ½ bowl of olive oil, ½ bowl of milk, 1 spoon baking powder, ½ spoon of baking soda and mix it in a jar giving it two or three grind.


Step 4: Add ½ spoon of vinegar in the mixture and mix it gently by using a spoon and then add the powdered biscuits and give it a gentle mix, first manually then mix it by giving it three grinds (10-12 sec) in mixer.


Step 5:Now pour the barter into the cooker and tap it gently and close the lid of the cooker after removing it’s rubber and whistle.


Step 6: Increase the height the burner of the stove which you can do by just placing the one stand above the another.
Place the cooker on the stove and let the cake get baked at the lowest flame for 20 minutes. Ensure that no direct fire touches the cooker. After 20 minutes, check the cake by using a fork or tooth pick. If it comes clear, it means the cake is ready and if not, place the lid again and leave it for 10-15 minutes more.


Step 7: Switch off the burner, open the lid and let the cake completely cool down. Once the cake is cooled down, detach it from the sides using a knife and place a plate over the cooker and turn it down. The cake will automatically comes down on the plate. The Bourbon Biscuit cake is ready. Now decorate the cake using dry fruits, cream or serve it plane.
😇


Now the point is how is this cake different from other cakes?
Bhai… Maine isme vinegar use kiya hai… And do not forget about one pinch of salt. It actually makes the cake fluffy and gives it a different flavour. Woo… Kahte hai na… A little bit of salt enhances the sweetness….

So guys!!! Please try this style of bourbon cake and enjoy your lockdown with your families.

STAY HOME.. STAY SAFE.. 😇

This Strange Food May Improve your Eye Sight

This Strange Food May Improve your Eye Sight

Hey folks,

Recently I went to Chaibasa to attend my cousin’s wedding. While returning back I visited to the local tribal market. I was really surprised to see that they were selling this strange food which they claim as the best food to improve eyesight.
The food was a kind of red ant and on asking how to eat it, appended was their reply.

“The preparation is very easy. You need to grind the ants using traditional grinders made of rock, add garlic paste and holia, the chatni (sauce) is ready to eat.”

However, being a vegetarian I am not found of eating ants. 🙂

You can watch my latest vlog titled – Strange Tribal Food on Jharkhand. In the vlog, I’ve also mentioned about the delicious vegetarian food served in one of the dhabas on the way to Chaibasa.

I could still remember those school days when my mom used to pack plain aloo bhaji/bhajia with poori or kachori for my lunch.

She used to peel off the potatoes, slice it in long thick pieces, deep fry them and sprinkle salt on them. That time we used to call it as plain aloo bhajia (now French fries) which used to be my favourite lunch during school days. Ah! I really miss those days.

Today, in the morning when I woke up I wanted to soothe my taste buds with those crispy French fries adding some desi flavors in it.
