Savory Semolina Cake

Baking is my second love as my first love is my family and when i cook for them i want to see that spark in their eyes and smiles on their faces, that increase my confidence level and makes me happy. Cooking is fun and experimenting new dishes is very exiting . It gives a boost like meditation that's why whenever i feel low , i just cook something for my family and their smiling faces give me amazing strength . Today in the baking series i am sharing a Gujarati delight- 'A semolina cake' which they call HANDVO  a very interesting savory semolina cake ...basically a mixture of vegetables with semolina and coconut. A very tasty snack for evening tea or breakfast.

GURWALE SHALGAM ( SWEET AND TANGY TURNIPS) punjabi style

Turnips are called Shalgam in Punjabi/Hindi, Gonglu in Punjabi and Gogji in Kashmiri. They are mild in taste and absorb spices well. We love it in various forms. Shalgam is a winter vegetable and is a popular recipe from Punjabi cuisine. Shalgam (Turnip) belongs to the radish family. Shalgam ki sabzi is very good for health as it is very low in calories and fat, and a good source of fiber and several vitamins like Vitamin C, Vitamin B, VitaminB3, Vitamin B6. Gur is Hindi/Punjabi for jaggery.  This creamy version from Punjab is one of our favourites.
