Ghee Residue Cake: Eggless tea cake.

Ghee residue is a brownish colored by-product of ghee preparation. This brownish byproduct is very rich in protein, essential fatty acids. Our elders used to massage babies with this ghee residue.

When I prepare ghee at home, use this super beneficial ghee residue in preparing roti dough or methi parata or prepare this very mild flavored tea time cake.

Note: you can replace ragi and wheat flour with chiroti rava. If you are using only rava, add only one cup, don’t add more because it absorbs moisture more than flour. This last picture of the cake is prepared using just chiroti rava.
