In a bowl, add semolina. To this add the sugar, baking powder, and cardamom powder and mix well.
In this dry mixture, add oil and mix well.
To this add mango pulp and vanilla extract incorporate well.
Let the batter sit for 15-20 minutes so that the mango pulp gets absorbed by semolina.In the meanwhile, preheat the oven to 170C.
Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan and bake at 170 C for 30-35 minutes. If it starts browning, lower the temperature a bit.Insert a toothpickâ€‹ in the centre of the cake to see if it is properly baked.This is the poke test.
If toothpick comes out clean, the cake is done. Donot do this midway between baking as the oven temperatures will drop when it is opened, and the baking will be incomplete.
Take it out of the oven and let it cool completely.Unmould the cake and pour the cream cheese frosting over(optional) and garnish with chopped toasted nuts and mango slices.
