  2. Add eggs and mix well.

  3. Sift together a pinch of salt, maida and baking soda and ensure that there are no lumps.

  9. To check if the cake is ready, insert a knife in it and pull it out gently. If the cake is not sticking to the blade of the knife, then it is perfectly baked.

  10. Let the cake cool down and serve it on a plate.

    While preparing the cooker, make sure that you use a heavy bottom aluminium cooker and cover it’s base completely with salt or sand. Place the stand over the salt/sand.
