Finger Millet Whole Wheat Chocolate Cake has Madua the local cereal of Kumaon. Our traditional food theories recommend the use of local and seasonal ingredients in everyday food. Madua/Raagi/Finger millets is a staple food of the people of the hills. Their robust health and longevity can definitely be attributed to this cereal. In Kumaon, it is incorporated in the diet in a number of ways. Madua is rich in calcium, iron, and protein. It is non-glutinous and not an acid forming food. It is least allergenic and most digestible grains available. Using the basic recipe for the chocolate eggless cake, I added madua flour and honey to the batter and the result was a beautiful, delicious and healthy Finger Millet honey Chocolate Cake.
Do not over mix the batter. Mix till the wet and dry ingredients are just incorporated.
