Eggless Chocolate Cooker Cake - Arusuvai Ingredient 1 - Cocoa Powder

2 cups maida
2 cups powdered sugar
2/3 cup oil or butter
2/3 cocoa powder
1 cup water
1 tsp vanilla essence
1.5 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
Some almonds and walnuts

Line the base of the vessel with butter paper or grease the bases and dust either with maida or sugar till well coated. Sift the flour, cocoa, baking soda and powder and transfer into a mixing bowl. Add the salt, sugar, fat, water and vanilla. Beat the mixture using a wooden spoon or a beater till well blended. Add the milk and  to the cake batter and beat till smooth. To this mixture add the broken almonds and walnuts.The batter looks almost glossy when done. Pour in into the greased vessel and place it in a cooker.
Instructions for baking in cooker:
Pour enough water in the cooker , invert a flat vessel on it. Placed the greased bowl along with the batter and steam for around 30 - 45 mins. Make sure that a tooth pick comes out clean to indicate that the cake is cooked well.
Ive not tried icing, so we had the cake as it is. Will try icing next time I bake a cake. My receipe with the other Arusuvai Ingredient will follow soon.
