    Congrats on your blog anniversary!
    The basboosa dish looks so yummy…

    But what is this broil mode? Do all ovens have this option? If not, what is the alternative?
    (My microwave oven is IFB)

    I would really luv to try this recipe.

  30. Yummy Team says:


    Broiling heats the food from top usig high heat so it can be done to brown or crisp foods, that have finished baking, but you have to be really careful while broiling as it can cause the food to burn. Most ovens will have a special broiler setting. There is no need to worry even if you dont have it. In this recipe, broiling is only an option and is done to make the basboosa surface, golden-colored. I have made this basboosa twice and the first time I did it without broiling. It still looked pretty and tasty 🙂 I will post its picture after some time. You can also try baking it for an additional 5 – 7 minutes to see if the surface turns golden. Hope this helps..Good luck!!

  31. Sook says:

  33. Congrats dear on completing one year. Those cakes look super yummy. I have heard they taste great too 🙂

  34. priya says:

    Do we need to use roasted rava for this?

  35. Yummy Team says:

    You dont need to use roasted rava..Just use the regular semolina that is available at the stores..

    Dear Anonymous,

    Thanks a lot for your lovely words and for trying out this recipe 🙂 Hope it comes out well for you..Waiting for your feedback 🙂

    The taste was awesome and it came really like wht u show in the pictures but the cake is not soft as i see in ur square sizes.Did i over bake?It became little hard now.When hot it was yummy now to tastes good but little dry.i did only use 1/2 stick of butter and did add a spoon of ghee.

    BTW i did ur Raw Banana too today and u know it is super hit.
    Simple yet delicious

  40. Yummy Team says:

    I am so glad that it came out well for you. I was actually waiting for your feedback, thanks for posting it :).

    Regarding your question, it takes some time for the cake to get soaked with the syrup, that might be the reason why it is not soft immediately after baking. Actually, it tastes best after 1-2 days. In case it is still a little hard after 1-2 days, then it can be because of less butter since you halved it or if you have broiled / baked it for long. Thanks again for trying it :).

  41. Yummy Team says:

    Thanks a lot for trying the raw banana mulakooshyam too..Really happy to know that you liked it 🙂

    Hey Yummy Team,

    Recipe is really looking good. But I am wondering if it can be made in a micro wave in convection mode ? Do you know how to bake it in a micro wave.


  43. Yummy Team says:

    Dear Anonymous

    We have never tried it in a microwave..Sorry about that 🙁
