As the name suggests this Indian sweet 7 Cup Cakes is done with exactly 7 cups of ingredients. This is a long due post and the very first post in 2011. My co-sister S made the sweet during Diwali festival. Though she was not quite happy with the results as she thought the mix got overcooked and did not taste exactly like what she wanted. But I thoroughly enjoyed the slight caramelized version of this delicacy and would love to do it this way if I am making it again :)
- Chickpea flour or besan - 1 cup
- coconut (could use dessicated) - 1cup
- milk - 1 cup
- ghee - 1 cup
- sugar - 3 cups (can reduce it to 21/2 need be)
Keep stirring the mix till it becomes thick and starts separating from the sides of the kadai. Add the sugar & coconut and keep stirring.
Spread a little ghee on a flat plate and pour the mixture over it. Make marks of any shape you desire using a knife and let it cool. Cut into piece and store 7 cup cakes in an air tight container.
The mixture was too thin and was cooked for couple of extra minutes which gave the slight golden brown color to this sweet.
