Healthy Chocolate Semolina Cake Recipe

4.50 from 4 votes

Indian families are generally fond of Semolina. I had a lot of suji ka halwa while I was a kid. But back then, never heard about a chocolate semolina cake recipe from anyone. I opted semolina (raw) to use as a base. Why semolina?Because it fits into all the parameters, that i wanted. Healthy without using wheat flour, light without using all-purpose flour. It is light and fluffy so cake will be light. The cake after baking will be soft and moist. Moreover it is known as superfood. This is a pure vegetarian eggless chocolate semolina cake recipe.

  1. Ensure you give 10 minutes of resting time when you soak semolina with wet ingredients.
  2. Just want to make Semolina cake without chocolate, remember to include 30gm of of semolina instead of 30gm of cocoa powder.
  3. Do not use stale curd. The recipe will completely get spoiled. Only fresh curd/yogurt that is sweet in taste.
  4. Use flavourless oil.
  5. If you feel that your batter is thick, add milk accordingly. The batter needs to be of pouring consistency, but not runny.
  6. Do not use roasted semolina for this recipe.
  7. Use fine semolina (sooji).
