Rava Mango Cake

Hey guys! If you do not like cream cakes and want to try out an easy tea time cake, you should definitely try out this recipe. This cake is made using rava/semolina. I have posted a basic rava cake recipe before, in this recipe I have used mangoes as it is the season and mangoes add a very nice flavor to this cake. I have not added tutti frutti to this cake and have used chopped nuts. You can add tutti frutti also. So lets get baking…

Powdered sugar – 1 cup

Curd – 1 cup
