I don’t have a perforated plate and the ring like the one you have used. Can I place a wide katori on top of the salt and then place my cake tin?
| Hide Replies
Tarla Dalal    The purpose of perforated plate is to cook the cake evenly. SO katori is not a replacement to a perforated plate.

Tarla Dalal    Dear Rashmi, There are very few chances of the cake turning sour as there is no curd also used. Kindly refer to the video for ease of understanding. https://www.tarladalal.com/eggless-chocolate-cake-(pressure-cooker)-video-by-tarla-dalal-990v

| Hide Replies
Tarla Dalal    We would suggest not to. The pan might warp if it is thin or the food might burn. Also, the cake might stick to the pan and not come out well.

I need the cake next day evening but cannot prepare on the same day.. So how do I store the cake so it remains soft n fresh for next day?
| Hide Replies
Tarla Dalal    Hi Hemal, You can store the cake by tightly wrapping it in plastic wrap to cover each side, don''t just cover the top, the plastic should touch all sides of the cake. Store it at room temperature. This is for unfrosted and un cut cake. Hope this helps :)

Tarla Dalal    Hi Chhavi, Since it''s a pressure cooker cake recipe, we have used 1 cup of salt. The salt goes at the bottom of the cooker and insulates it.
