Servings 4


  • 1 Cup Semolina/Sooji
  • ½ Cup Dessicated Coconut
  • ¼ cup Milk Powder
  • ½ Cup Raw Cane Sugar
  • ¾ Cup Plain Yogurt
  • 1 tsp Fresh Orange Zest from two medium sized oranges
  • 60 ml Fresh Orange Juice or ¼ cup
  • ¼ tsp Baking Soda
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ¼ Cup Oil/Ghee
  • 60 ml Milk
  • ¼ Cup Dried Cranberries
  • ¼ Cup Finely chopped Almonds


  • In a bowl mix semolina with milk , 2 tbsp of yogurt and keep aside for about 20 mins.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C for 15 mins.
  • In a bowl, add sugar and orange zest and rub zest into fine sugar granules.
  • Add oil and mix, till sugar mixes well.
  • Add rest of the yogurt and mix well.
  • Mix together milk powder, dessicated coconut , baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Add soaked semolina to yogurt and sugar mix. Also add milk powder and coconut mix.
  • Add orange juice. You can also add milk in place of juice.
  • Add dusted finely chopped almonds and cranberries.
  • Mix everything together and fold nicely. Batter should be of dropping consistency.
  • Transfer the batter to lightly oiled cake tin or lined with parchment paper. I used small 3 Cup bundt pan. You can use 6" cake tin.
  • Bake in preheated oven for about 35-40 mins.
  • Once the cake starts to leave the sides of cake pan, do the toothpick test. If it comes out clean or with 1-2 cake crumbs, cake is done.
  • If the top starts to brown and there is sticky batter on the tooth pick, cover cake tin with aluminium foil and bake for another 10 mins.
  • Once done, take out from the oven, let it stand for about 5 mins, then gently take out and cool on the wire rack.
  • Cut into pieces once the cake completely cools down.
