Eggless Dumroot/ Dummadai / Rava Adai
I've already shared the recipe of the famous Dumroot/ Dummadai / Rava Adai almost five years back in my blog. After receiving a request for the eggless version of the Sweet.... thought of what could be the substitute to the eggs as this is completely an egg based sweet. Then I remembered the basboosa recipe where yogurt is used in the recipe and no eggs... but my preparation method of Dummadai didnt suit it.... Seeked the help of my friend who has shared a couple of recipes in my blog. She gave me her recipe and I substituted the eggs instead and used yogurt.. the recipe was a success and here I give you the Eggless Dummadai / Rava Adai
Semolina/ Rava 1 cup
Sugar 1 cup
Ghee 1/2 cup
Thick Yogurt 1/2 cup
Water 2 tbps
Baking powder 1/4 tsp

Soak the almonds in hot water and peel the skin.

Mix the yogurt, water, baking powder and salt and mix well.
Heat Ghee in a pan and roast the semolina for about 10 minutes.
Remove from fire and add the sugar and almond mixture, cardamom powder .and mix it well.
Add the evaporated milk , yogurt mixture , saffron and mix well.
Pour them in the greased pan and place them in the lower rack in the oven and bake them for 10 minutes.
Now reduce the temperature to 170* C and place them in the middle rack now and bake them for about 20 minutes. Insert the skewer and check whether its done.
Remove from the oven and run the knife around the edges to loosen them. Transfer them to a plate.
