    1. Deepika Buttermilk is available in supermarkets but you can also easily make at home. Take 1 cup of warm milk and add 1 tbsp of vinegar or lime juice, stir and keep for few mins and it is ready to use.

  1. Hi Akum, Thank you for sharing the recipe. I am making this recipe today, and I observed that my batter went too thick (even went hard to mix). Used the same proportion of ingredients you have shared . Not sure why it happened. Can you help me understand what went wrong here.

    1. Hi Sindhu.. the Measuring cup used is 240 ml, hope you are using the same to measure the ingredients.. it’s ok it happens sometimes due to inaccurate measuring of the ingredients and especially flour.. just add few more tbsps of buttermilk and adjust the batter consistency

      1. Thank you for your reply. However, I used kitchen weighing machine to measure my ingredients. I added water to adjust the consistency and the cake turned out good. But I felt it could have been more better. May be I haven’t whisked oil and sugar enough. Not really sure about the reason . Anyways,thanks dear
