Savory Semolina Cake

Neha Mattur shares her mother’s lovely signature recipe for a savory semolina cake.
By Neha Mattur

Baking has taken over me. I am just in love with it and is a real stress buster for me. I am always on a lookout for healthy yet delicious recipe. This cake is one of my mother’s signature recipe which she has been making for years. She made it on Sunday mornings for the breakfast and sometimes when we had guests for evening teas, and it has always been the shining star of the table.

This is easy to make and the ingredients are not hard to find in your pantry.

  • Hi Neha, I was looking for a savory cake for my diabetic dad. This recipe fits the bill. Thank you! Can you tell me what’s the shelf life for this cake?

  • It tasted good but didn’t cook at all in the middle. I had to throw it all away. Any ideas why this happened??

    • I followed recipe to the t
      But it was too liquid
      I had to slice the almost done loaf and bake the slices on boh sides again.
      Why would that have happened?

  • Have tried this recipe couple of time… this is my go to recipe when I want to serve my family something wholesome to snack on. Wonderfully filling and full of nutrients.
