Spicy Vegetable Cake

I have been requesting family and friends to send in their favourite recipes, kitchen experiences and anything to do with their idea about food to be featured on the Guest Post segment of Avial N Rasam.

My first two posts under the guest segment happened by chance and I loved the idea of contributions to the blog from people in my life. The first to respond to my request is my cousin Pallavi. She is a busy working mother of a cute two year old, and finds ways and means to incorporate vegetables into her little one's diet - (my 2 year old niece.) Here is the recipe she sent in...The recipe turned out so well and was over in no time...Picture credits : Pallavi
