Here’s how to make a delicious Atta Cake, or in other words Whole Wheat Chocolate Cake, all made in a pressure cooker.
Not only this cooker cake is high in fiber, but has no added white sugar. This naturally sweet cake is a perfect snack along dish to have with a cup of tea or coffee.
Loaded with the goodness of dates, now why don’t you try it out? Oh yes, this can be added to your diet if you’re a diabetic patient, in small servings 🙂
Let’s get to it.
Making an atta cake is that easy. Now why don’t you try it out and share a virtual treat with me?
The cake is irresistibly delicious, one literally cannot judge if there is any sugar added. I agree, there is a lot of sugar in this cake in the form of dates and stevia. But that’s natural, and not refined white sugar. And you can easily decrease the amount. Stevia is optional to add, but I like the touch of bitterness it gives in this, that just spikes the sweetness 🙂
That’s all for today, Keep cooking & stay fantastic!
Hey, Here comes another sweet recipe, but this time its sugar free. Now-a-days more and more people are not able to eat a lot of sugar.. Have been getting a lot of requests for Diabetic Friendly recipes.. So, I thought to start with this Sugar free Rasgulla.. Yes, Yes, I used Sugar Free Natura which is nothing but sucralose and having a lot of it isn’t a good thing for diabetics. But I believe, having one in once in a looonnngg while doesn’t matter much ya? I’m not very much known to diabetics to be true as noone in my family is diabetic.. You can use any Sucralose in this recipe.. And even cut down the sugar to half, that is add 10 grams of Sugar Free Substitute. Without any much delay, let’s get on to the recipe.
Start by heating up the milk in a pan stirring regularly till it gets a boil. Shut off the flame, and let it cool for a minute.
Slowly pour in the diluted lemon juice stirring well until it separates into whey and cheese/chenna.
As soon as the milk curdles, strain it over a cheesecloth/muslin cloth which is lined in a colander over a bowl.
Pour cold water over the cheese to get it cold and get rid of acidic taste/flavor. Gather the edges and squeeze lightly. Tie it somewhere like on faucet / drawer handle and let the whey drip and excess moisture leave out for 30 minutes.
In a deep and wide vessel/pan add in 9 cups of water along with the sugar free substitute. Heat it up till it gets a roaring boil.
Once the chenna has been dripping the moisture for 30 minutes, take it out and see if it lightly crumbles and breaks its ready otherwise squeeze out the moisture from it. There needs to be a little bit of moisture in the chenna, but it should not be wet either.
Divide the chenna into equal sized balls. I made 15 out of it.
Drop the balls in the vigorously boiling syrup and cover for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, take the lid off and cook for another 10 minutes. Make sure the syrup if continuously boiling, adjust the flame accordingly.
After it has been cooked for 15 minutes in total, take them out to a bowl with minimal syrup to cover them. Boil the remaining syrup for another 5 minutes and then pour all together to the boil.
Let it cool to room temp, refrigerate then and enjoy! 🙂 Tastes best once rested for 7-8 hours, I prefer to make mine in evening and serve next day.
I used Sugar Free Natura which comes in powder form. I DO NOT recommend you to use the sugar free tablets/pellets as they might bring a bitter taste. You can use any sugar free which is sucralose. If you are thinking to cut down on sugar even more, feel free to add 10grams of it or even less.. But if you divide the sugar free and rasgullas, its less than 1 and a half sachets Per Rasgulla of sugar free that you usually add to your tea/coffee..
This is a must for you to try, And I hope you will definitely try 🙂 No compromise on anything, just tastes fantastic!
