Rice and lentil cake - savoury cake
I have always admired the beautiful baking recipes by pearls of east. This idea of savory cake using rice and lentil sounded really interesting. I wanted to make it as soon as I saw it. So I made this for a sunday brunch. Its actually a traditional oriya recipe called poda pitta. Hers has come totally brown while mine is white in the inside. The probable reason must be because I used light brown sugar. So the batter was creamish in colour. You can try adding jaggery. But anyway, it is the taste that matters. We enjoyed it. Thanks for the lovely recipe.
