When you dont have an oven

If you want to bake but don't have an oven at home pressure cooker can take its place.

Fill the pressure cooker with one inch sand and preheat. The cake mould can be placed on this directly or with a small aluminium stand.
Do not close and seal the cooker, just place a heavy thali on it.
A 1/2 kg cake takes 30-40 minutes with flame on sim.
