Ragi Cake

Ingredients to make Ragi Cake

  • Ragi / Finger millet Flour – 2 1/4 cups
  • Thick jaggery Syrup 1 cup
  • Grated carrots 2 cups
  • Peeled and Grated potatoes 2 cups
  • Baking Powder 1 1/2 tsp
  • baking soda - 1 tsp
  • pistachios - 1 cup
  • cashewnuts - 1 cup
  • salt - 1/2 tsp
  • cardamom Powder - 1 tsp
  • Thick curd - 1 cup
  • ghee - 3/4 cup

How to make Ragi Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and dust two loaf pans. In a bowl mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cardamom powder.
  2. For 1 cup of syrup you will need 1 1/2 cups of grated jaggery. Let it cool down. In another bowl cream together ghee and jaggery syrup.
  3. Add in the curd and whisk. Now add the flour mixture and mix until the batter is lump free. Add in the grated carrots and potatoes and mix.
  4. Finally add the nuts and mix well to incorporate. Divide the batter between two loaf tins and bake for 1 hour.
  5. When you insert a tooth pick after 1 hour, it may feel slightly sticky but remove it and allow it to cool completely on wire rack.

My Tip:

Slice only when cool. Enjoy with a cup of coffee. Jaggery is a good source of iron and thus its a very healthy cake too.

This is so good for people who are iron and calcium deficient. Ragi and Jaggery, both are a real good source.
