  1. Preheat the kadhai nicely. I have used salt but sand can be used as well.
  2. Refine the maida and sugar and the ingredients so that while whisking no lumps are formed.
  3. You can always use bowls of your choice just make sure to grease them well and dust.
  4. While placing dark chocolate inside the batter, place exactly in the middle and avoiding getting to the sides.
  5. I have used a plate with holes but you can use a normal plate as well. Just make sure the lid that covers the kadhai should cover it properly so that gases don’t come out and cake is cooked nicely.
