7 Cups Cake

Lets Start the diwali postswith a sweet. The name of the sweet is 7 cups cake. The necessary ingredients are as follows.
  1. Besan Flour - 1 cup
  2. Sugar - 3 cups
  3. Fresh coconut - 1 cup
  4. Ghee ( or melted unsalted butter) - 1cup
  5. Milk - 1 cup.

Pre-heat a wide pan for a minute, add all the above said ingredients and stir it thoroughly in a steady steam. Continuously and thoroughly stirring, cook until the ghee starts to leave the sides of the pan and the mixture starts to thicken and turns to kind of semi-solid and light gold in color. Immediately pour it in a big greasy tray or plate and cut it into squares or diamonds whichever shape you want.

When it is still hot, we can decorate each diamond or square with a cashew or almond. It will taste more like mysore pak. But the main difference is, we are adding coconut and milk in this receipe. It will take 20 minutes to finish this receipe and the kids will definitely love this.

I usually don't decorate. If you wish to do it, you can do it.
