  9. milk - 1/2 cup.


PREPARATION;-


  • first preheat the cooker without water with 1cup of salt at the base of the cooker and keep on a low flame till you prepare the cake mixture.
  • Next grease the vessel   ( i used cooker tin round shape as it goes easily inside the cooker) with 1tsp of butter and dust the surface with refined flour evenly and keep aside.


method;-

  1. first mix all the dry ingredient Sieve Maida, baking powder, baking soda and salt and keep aside
  2. take a bowl combine butter and powder sugar and make a cream out of it.
  3. then add curd and beat well.

  10. take another bowl and  add cocoa powder and mix well.
  11. now take the greased tin pour the plain cake batter and cocoa batter alternatively.
  12. To get the marble look, once u have poured the two batters one by one alternatively, take a fork or a toothpick and make swirls. not just on the top. 
  13. Insert the fork / toothpick inside and make the swirls, So not only the top but also inside you have swirls once the cake is done.
