On top of it, when you are baking for someone with allergy issues, you have your job cut out with the type of ingredients to use. I am happy my ragi carrot cake came up beautifully and delighted the one it was baked for.

Ingredients for vegan ragi cake
1 cup=240 ml

1cup=ragi/finger millet flour
1/2 cup-besan (chickpea flour)
1/4 cup-grated carrot (you may add up to 1/2cup)
1/2 cup-dessicated coconut powder (dry)
1/2 cup-water +2tbssp extra
2tbsp-flaxmeal +6 tbsp hot water
1 tsp- coffee powder
1/4 cup- cocoa powder
1/2 cup- jaggery powder
1/2 tsp- black salt
1/2 tsp- baking soda
1/4 cup-olive oil

Mix flax meal with hot water. Mix and add coffee powder. Keep aside.
Preheat the cooker for 10 minutes. If you are baking in a convection/otg/airfryer/oven, preheat the same for 10 minutes to 180 degrees.
Add coconut powder, 1/2 cup water, oil, and jaggery powder in a mixer/grinder and process for 2 minutes.
Add the flax meal+coffee mix and again process until everything is incorporated. Add black salt and mix.
Sift ragi, besan, baking soda, and cocoa powder 2-3 times. Make a well in the center and pour the wet ingredients in batches.
Fold the batter. Do not overmix. Overmixing the batter will result in a dense/hard cake.
Add carrot and fold again. If the cake looks dry or too thick, add 2 tbsp of water.
Grease a baking pan/mould and dust with flour.
Pour the batter into the baking pan.
Tap the baking mould 2-3 times to release air bubbles.
Place the baking tin inside the cooker. However, place a cooker stand inside. I did not add a sand/salt layer at the cooker base, but you may spread it. Spreading a layer of sand or salt will help in even baking and speed up the baking time. Since I didn't add a salt/sand layer, it took my cake 1 hour to bake properly. If you do choose to add a salt/sand layer, your cake may be done in 40-50 mins.
Remove the whistle from the cooker lid and cover.
Bake on a high flame for the first 5 mins. Lower the heat after that. Keep baking on a low flame.
Insert a knife/skewer in the cake after 40mts to see if it is baked from inside. If not, continue to bake further.
When done, remove the cooker lid, turn off the flame, and cover the cooker with a cloth/kitchen towel for 5 mins.
After that, remove the cake tin from the cooker. Let the eggless cake vegan cool down, unmold and place on a cooling rack for 1 hour.
Cut into slices only when the vegan ragi cake has cooled completely. Enjoy the vegan refined sugarfree cake.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body. Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking. Remove foam from top to reduce gassy elements from millets.  How long should millet be soaked before cooking? Soaking the millets overnight is a safe practice. Soaking breaks down the phytic acid in millets or for that matter grains and nuts. Phytic acid hinders the absorption of minerals and nutrients in food, including calcium, iron, and zinc. How? Phytates bind to minerals and nutrients and make their absorption difficult in the gut. Your tummy finds it tough to digest millets in that case. So soaking millets and draining off that soaked water makes it easier on your tummy.  Are millets safe for thyroid? Does
