Recovering from a hectic week? Want to perk-up over the weekend? Or just wanna de-stress? or whip up a dish for your kids?
Here’s a perfect weekend getaway! And guilt-free, at that!
1 cup of Semolina/Rava (fine variety)
1 cup Mango pulp
1/4 coconut oil
1/4 cup Sugar
1/3 cup dry fruits powder
1 teaspoon Baking powder
½ tsp ground cardamom powder
¼ tsp ginger powder
1/8 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
¼ cup chopped pistachios for garnishing
¼ cup raisins/cranberries
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.
Grease cake pan. I used a loaf pan.
Mix the Semolina (Rava) with sugar.
Add cardamom powder, nutmeg, ginger powder, nuts powder and baking powder
Next add oil and mix well
Finally add the mango pulp and mix again. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
Pour the batter in pan. Garnish with pistachios. Place in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes. Keep an eye after 20 minutes.
If the knife comes out clean then remove immediately. If it is kept for a longer time, the cake will become hard especially on the top.
Remove from pan after 10-15 minutes.
Let it cool. Cut and serve.

Shachi Kapadia Jain – I am a stay at home mom of two lovely yet ever demanding girls, who are the sole inspiration of my cooking experiments. Being a hardcore Jain, we hardly could eat out here in the USA, so homemade food is the only option, and, as most of you would agree, is the best one!! The need and curiosity to try new cuisines and healthier homemade versions, makes every day, every meal an adventure in itself. An HR manager by profession, I chose to be a stay at home mom when my older daughter turned 8 months old and, ever since I have been striving for wholesome nutrition. I love to read, write and travel. Have been wanting to start my food blog…hopefully soon. You can reach me at [email protected]
