Savoury Semolina cupcake

I was searching for a snack item and got this in an old vanitha magazine. It sounded different and so thought of trying it. Came out well. Have any of you tried this before??

  1. Oil - 2 tbsp
  2. Rava/Semolina - 1 cup
  3. Curd - 1/2 cup
  4. Water - 1/2 cup
  5. Ginger paste - 1 tsp
  6. Onion chopped - 1/4 cup
  7. Beans chopped - 1/4 cup
  8. Carrot chopped - 1/4 cup
  9. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  10. Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
  11. Salt to taste 
  12. Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  13. Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  14. Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp

  • Preheat your oven to 150 degrees
  • Mix together ingredients 2 to 11 to get a semi-thick batter(If the batter is too thick add little more water)
  • Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. Once it spluters add cumin seeds. Switch off when you get the smell of cumin.
  • Add this to the above batter. Blend well.
  • Mix the baking soda to the batter. 
  • Pour in cupcake tray and bake for 10 minutes (adjust your oven accordingly)
I didn't add beans. It is a carrot semolina cake. May be you all can try this with the vegetables of your choice. It tastes even better with coconut chutney.
