Vettu Cake-Step by step recipe





Ingredients
  1. Egg- 1 large
  2. Powdered sugar- 1/2 cup(75 gms)
  3. Baking soda- 1/4 tsp
  4. All purpose flour- 1 cup(few tbsp more ,as required)
  5. Cardamom powder- 1/4 tsp(see notes)
  6. Oil- for deep frying
Directions
  • In a large bowl,mix together egg and powdered sugar until combined.
  • Add baking soda,all purpose flour and cardamom powder.
  • Mix well until combined.
  • Knead gently to form a smooth dough.(If the dough is sticky,add 1 or 2 tbsp more  all purpose flour.)Keep aside for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into two ,form each half into a rectangular log.( or just shape whole of the dough into a large rectangular log for slightly larger cakes)


  • Using a sharp knife ,slice the dough into 3/4 to 1" thick slices.Make two deep cuts on each slice,as shown in the picture.Keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan and deep fry,over a medium heat,until it turns golden brown.
  • Drain on to a kitchen towel, allow it to cool completely.Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
NOTES
  • Make sure you fry the cakes over a medium heat.If the oil is too hot,the outside of the cakes will brown too quickly and inside will be under cooked. 
  • Do not over fry the cakes,if you do so it will be a bit too hard to eat.
  • For best results use freshly ground cardamom powder.
  • You can make 28 to 30 small cakes or 14 to 15 larger cakes from the above mentioned quantity.
