Hi , I wanted to know if baking in cooker than how many mins do I have to pre heat and how many mins do i have to keep it

Tarla Dalal    Preheat the pressure cooker on high flame for 15 minutes with salt at the base. Place a ring in the centre and then place the cake tin. Cook this for 30 to 40 minutes on medium flame, with the ring in the pressure cooker lid but without whistle.

The cake has the taste and smell of oil that is put in it. Very disappointed!

Tarla Dalal    Hi, The oil should be neutral in taste like sunflower or canola any flavoured oil used will give a smell of the oil.
