Tried something today.
Thought to share it.
Step 1: Ingredients
for cake batter.
Maida ( all purpose flour) 1 and 3/4 cup
Sugar 1 and 1/2 cup
Cocoa powder 3/4 cup
Milk 1 cup
baking powder 1 and half teaspoon
baking soda 1 and half teaspoon

Step 2: Mix All Your Wet Ingredients
in the bowl of sugar add
now whisk well.
Step 3: Mix Your Dry Ingredients
In a strainer put,
Maida ( all purpose flour)
strain well to avoid lumpsand mix with spoon
Step 4: Add Dry Ingredients Into Wet Ingredients
with help of a whisk mix the dry ingredients into wet ingredients with help of folding technique to avoid lumps.
add your boiling water ( this makes your cake moist)
Step 5: Cooking
In a cake pan ( or any metal tin) place butter paper with help of butter ( greasing it)
now add your batter. ( 3/4 full)
If your using steaming pressure cooker, place your cake pan on top of the grill present inside.
place a metal container upside down in side any other pressure cooker ( simpler one) and place your cake pan on top of it. ( this helps to avoid direct heat)
close your lid but don't place the pressure nozzle ( you don't water the water vapors to be trapped inside the pressure cooker.
cook of high flame for 5 minutes ( if your stove is numbered cook on number 5)
after 5 minutes cook on medium flame for 30-35 minutes ( if your stove is numbered cook on number 3)
2= low medium
4= medium high
if your cake is still not cooked ( ur knife don't come out cleam after inserting) keep cooking on medium flame for extra time ( checking after every 5-7 minutes)
once cooked. Let it rest for 5 minutes. then let it cool down on a grill.
