Savoury vegetable cake

I was intending to bake a savoury version of a cake for a very long time. As I always try to make my cakes healthy and of low calories, I wanted my savoury cake to be the same so that we could have a healthy guilt free and delicious snack. And therefore I have incorporated the multigrain atta which contains barley, ragi, soya along with a large proportion of wheat flour. I have found this atta really ideal for baking purposes . The cake has a lovely spongy texture.

And then the addition of vegetables of your choice makes it more healthier. You could use corn , red and yellow bell peppers, mushrooms, peas etc. I am sure the kids would love it as well as the grown ups too!!!

I am sending this to Kids delight at spicing your life as the theme this time is Snacks.
