Date'n'Walnut Cake

Ingredients
Dates 22
Milk 3/4 cup
Sugar 3/4 cup
All purpose flour (Maida) 1 cup
Oil 1/2 cup (I use sunflower - but I guess you can use any good oil that doesnt have a strong flavour)
Baking soda 1 tsp
Walnuts 1 handful


Method
Soak the dates in warm milk overnight. Remove the seeds. Keep a few dates separate. Add sugar and grind most of the dates to a smooth paste along with the milk in which it is soaked. Then take the 3-4 dates you've kept aside and smash it and add to the paste (this gives a delightful texture within the cake). Add oil to this paste and and mix.
Sieve together flour and baking soda at least thrice. Add the flour 1-2 table spoons at a time to the above mixture and mix well. Fold in the walnuts just before you transfer to the baking dish.
Preheat the oven at 350F (175 C). Bake the cake in a greased oven proof dish for 35-40min (or till a knife inserted in the cake comes out clean).

Indian food uses spices and herbs that not just give it its distinctive taste and flavor but are also great for your health. Turmeric has been linked to cancer-prevention, ginger for coughs and colds and so on... Spices supply calcium, iron, vitamin B/C, carotene and other antioxidants.

So enjoy Indian food while the ingredients help your system!
