  • This cake is made in pressure cooker.. so we need to preheat the cooker first.. spread a layer of salt at the bottom of cooker, keep a small vessel or stand on top of which cake tin can be placed. Care should be taken to remove the weight from the whistle of cooker.
  • Now close and preheat the cooker for 10 mins.
  • Grease a cake tin with butter or oil.. place a butter paper at the bottom .
  • Pour the prepared cake batter upto 3/4 of cake tin.
  • Open the cooker and place the cake tin on top of the vessel inside.close and cook for almost 30 to 40 mins in medium flame.
  • After 40 mins open the lid and pass a fork or tooth pick through the cake and remove it out . If nothing sticks to it the cake is done.
