Mix all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl nicely. Maida,chiroti rava,milk powder,baking soda,baking powder and salt .Mix nicely for even spread of baking powder and soda.Keep aside.
Peel and chop the mangoes. In a mixer puree mango along with sugar and cardamom . Don’t add any extra water .
Later mix all wet ingredients in another mixing bowl ie mango n sugar puree + oil + curd . Mix well .
Preheat the oven at 190 deg C for 10mins. Grease the baking pan with little oil and dust some maida.
Now mix wet and dry ingredients together ie Add the curd mango mixture to rava maida mixture slowly and mix until a thick batter is formed. Add chopped nuts and mix once. Reserve 1 tbsp of nuts for topping.
You will see that the batter is thick . Add 2-3 tbsp of hot water and mix . Water required varies. But in any case it will be less than 1/4 cup . So add accordingly to bring the batter to the right consistency .
Transfer the batter to the cake pan. Top the cake batter with remaining chopped nuts .
Bake it for 35-40mins at 190 degree C. Better to check once after 30 mins.The top should have turned to a golden brown color and if you check with a toothpick in the center of the cake it should come out clean ..then your cake is done. Mine took 38 mins .
Cool it for 15-20 mins, unmould and slice them.
That’s it .. Egg less mango cake is ready to relish . With mango elaichi flavour , chopped nuts in between this cake tastes really yumm !!
You can substitute all purpose flour with wheat or use 50 :50 .
Adding sooji gives a nice texture to the cake .
Store brought mango pulp or puree can be used.
Addition of hot water and milk powder makes the cake soft.
walnut can also be added.
If your mangoes are too sweet , you can reduce sugar quantity . If you ant you can increase mango quantity too.
Color of the cake depends on the mangoes . I havent added any color.
