Ingredients Used In The Recipe

  • Semolina/Suji: this is the star ingredient of the recipe. I have used fine semolina in this recipe, but you can also make this cake with coarse or thick semolina.
  • Curd: curd adds moisture to the cake resulting in a soft and tender cake. It also acts binding agent that gives structure to the cake. It reacts with baking powder and baking soda, raising the cake and becoming lighter in texture.
  • Rising agent: I have used baking soda and baking powder as a rising agents. It reacts with curd and gives the cake a great rise and light texture.
  • Butter: for this recipe, I have used butter in melted form. It gives rich and buttery goodness to the cake, enhancing the overall flavour. Butter is the source of fat, which helps keep the cake moist during baking. It also gives a nice desirable brown colour to the cake’s exterior. You can replace it with vegetable oil or clarified butter if you do not have butter.
  • Milk: semolina absorbs liquid quickly, so adding milk helps retain moisture during baking.
  • Sugar: it is the main ingredient in providing sweetness to the cake. It enhances the overall flavour and balances the combination of semolina and butter.
  • All-purpose flour: this ingredient provides structure to the suji cake by forming a gluten network in the cake, which holds the shape of the cake. It also contributes to developing a tender and delicate crumb when combined with other ingredients.

How To Make No-Oven Suji Cake?

See the recipe box for complete instructions.

Preparation: Prepare a round 6-inch tin by brushing oil and placing butter paper at the bottom. Also, preheat the cooker for baking the cake. Remove the gasket from the lid and put a round ring inside the cooker. Ensure not to place the cake tin directly inside the cooker, or it may burn the cake from the bottom. You can also set a steel bowl inside the cooker upside down. Cover the cooker with the lid and let it heat on medium flame. 

Mix Curd and Sugar: whisk curd and sugar in a bowl until properly incorporated. Use a balloon whisk to mix. This will help the curd to smoothen.

Add Butter and Vanilla Essence: Add melted butter along with vanilla essence and give it a mix.

Add Milk: Now, add milk and mix it again.

Dry Ingredients (1): Fold in semolina and salt and combine until no lumps are seen.

Rest the Batter: Let the batter rest for 30 minutes and cover it with food-grade plastic wrap. This step is crucial for the recipe, as resting the batter helps the semolina soften. Skipping this step may result in a grainy texture when baked.

Dry Ingredients (2): Now remove the plastic wrap and sieve in all-purpose flour, baking powder and baking soda and give it a final mix. 

Bake: Transfer the batter to the prepared ring and carefully place it on the ring inside the cooker. Bake it for 30-40 minutes on medium heat or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted at the centre. Make sure you keep checking the cake. Otherwise, you may end up with a burnt cake.

Cooling: When the cake is baked properly, remove it from the cooker carefully with the help of oven mitts. And let it come to room temperature.

Garnish: De-mould the cake with a bent palette knife. Brush cold glaze on top with a pastry brush. This will help the chopped pistachios to stick to the cake. Garnish the top with chopped pistachios. Sprinkle some dried rose petals as well. Now, place edible silver leaves randomly at last. 

Oven process:

If you already have an oven and do not want to bake the cake in the cooker, I have written the process below:

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) for a few minutes while the semolina batter rests.
  • When the batter is ready, place it in the oven and bake it in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

How To Store No-Oven Sooji Cake?

To store the no-oven suji cake, let it come to room temperature after baking. This ensures that the cake has no condensation while in the container.

Wrap the cake with food-grade plastic wrap, then freeze it for 2-3 months.

You can store the garnished cake in the freezer for up to 1-2 months in an airtight container or cling-wrapping it.

Chef’s Tip For The Recipe:

Tip For Semolina Batter

Let the semolina rest for some time before adding all-purpose flour. This step allows the semolina to absorb the moisture, which results in a softer texture.

Tip For Cooker

Remove the gasket from the cooker lid before covering it. Also, Do not place the cake tin directly inside the cooker, and use a ring or a steel bowl according to your cooker’s size. Choose an appropriate cooker deep enough to fit the cake tin and circulate air. Also, ensure the cooker has a heavy thick bottom that provides even heat distribution.

Right Flame

Maintain low to medium heat to bake the cake. This ensures even baking and no burning from the bottom.

“I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date”
Before this program I knew a little about manifestations, but as I discovered during the program, I had a lot of limiting beliefs that kept me from fully embracing and accepting myself as a manifestor.
During this program I became more aware of what manifestation is and how powerful I am. I become more aware of my guides, of my highest self and that I can pull the best of my highest self into my present. Since this program I no longer wrestle with trying to convince myself that what I desire will happen. I know that it has happened, it is done and it is mine, here and now. I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date, my eyesight has improved and I no longer need glasses for distance vision, only for reading, I gave myself a make-over as part of my commitment to my renewal and I began to de-clutter my space.

“My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes”
Joining “The Art of Manifesting” was a life-changing decision for me. This is now the third time going through the quest and focusing on different areas of manifestation.
Regan is a powerful guide and she walks the talk.
This 28-day journey was a blend of practical techniques and profound energetical activations. I learned to visualize my goals clearly, expand my possibilities, and overcome the limitations holding me back from living a life i desire. The quest’s unique approach to identity hacking helped me align my inner self with my aspirations, making the manifestation process more effective and authentic.
The biggest takeaway for me was the acceleration of manifestation by bending time and tapping into the highest frequencies. The techniques taught in the quest enabled me to see results much faster than I expected. My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes, and goals that once seemed unattainable are now within reach.
I’m beyond grateful for the wisdom and tools I’ve gained from this quest and Regan. It’s not just about manifesting; it’s about transforming your entire lifestyle. I highly recommend “The Art of Manifesting” to anyone looking to turn their dreams into reality.

“This course and listening to Regan’s podcasts gave me the tools to acknowledge my blocks and mindsets around drinking”
I have so enjoyed this journey with Regan, I am a new person as a result of this quest. I now have new beliefs & mindsets that I keep working on daily, hourly. A kinder and more compassionate version of me has emerged over this journey, and I love her!
This quest has resulted in me finding the lost me, the me that has been hidden under the voices of doubt, fear or just lack of awareness that I get to run my life not the other voices in my head or family and people around me. When we wire ourselves to the future version of us, then we make different choices and we are already a different person!
Thank you Regan, thank you Mindvalley, thank you tribe!!!! ❤❤, I love you all and wish you a magical Christmas and hope our paths may cross one day at Mindvalley events.

“My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest”
Before taking this Quest I believed that the prerequisites of success were hard work, long hours, timing and a degree of luck; “1% inspiration and 99% perspiration” was my mantra. Trying to achieve success with this mindset was exhausting, frustrating and unsustainable.


I then discovered The Art of Manifesting … and was blown away.


The foundational teaching of focusing on your inner world to achieve has been transformative in the way I live my life. I now know that cultivating the feeling of already being in possession of that which you want, accelerates the manifestation of what you desire.


My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest, and have discovered a path to manifest greater abundance in the year to come. But perhaps the biggest shift I experienced during this quest now knowing that I am worthy and deserving of abundance. Regan, I am eternally grateful to you, thank you :-)

“Now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered”
Before this program, I believed somewhat in manifestation but never knew how to do it, or if it was real, and the little bit I did know ended up being completely wrong! This Quest has not only taught me how to manifest and put me on the path to doing it the right way, but I was actually able to manifest what I had set at the beginning.
I never thought it would actually come true, but I committed myself to the process and gave it 100% every day. And now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered. It’s truly blowing my mind.
I had a financial goal for the end of the Quest, and different opportunities for selling my artwork started coming up, and the deals are coming out almost to the exact number I had set.
Not only that, but I have truly transformed into a better version of myself in these short weeks, more than I had in the last few years, that my spouse has even noticed.
I’m so excited for what’s to come next and so grateful for this program. Thank you.

“I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design”
I joined Mindvalley on New Year’s 2023. I am excited to share how life has significantly changed in the first 90 days of the year. Beginning with the Silva Method, I envisioned and transformed a dysfunctional personal relationship, into a loving, caring separation, allowing me the peace and serenity to follow my path, and my partner to choose his. In February while on the Art of Manifesting Quest I listed my intent to have a book written by May 2023, and have a speaking engagement booked by December 2023.
I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design, and a journal for Women seeking a deeper connection with themselves, also in design. Both will be uploaded via KDP Amazon self-publishing by May 1st.
I have booked a speaking engagement for May with the intent of having published books with me for sale.
Most importantly – this morning I changed my profile from ‘Document writer’ to ‘Author.’
Gratitude abounds!!!
