Yogurt Cake with White Chocolate and Walnut and Hubby's Keema

First up you may recall yesterday I only used half of the turkey mince, my hubby used the other to make keema, on the plate right hand side. He sauteed onion, garlic, mustard seeds, cumin powder, coriander powder and green chili. Then added masala powder the turkey then tomatoes and simmered for 2o min. At the end he added cooked potatoes and fresh chopped cilantro. Very tasty.

Today I was feeling a wee bit lonely the house is so quiet without Mum and Dad here so I tried to make a cake, I saw a yogurt cake on Dajana's blog
 when I re read it i saw this was a third attempt, I was warned he he
So anyways here's my version


  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • some lemon juice
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • handful of walnuts and a few squares of white chocolate (I got this in Aldli cheap and good, even when the Germans make cheap chocolate it turns out well!)

  1. Mix yogurt, sugar, lemon juice, eggs together
  2. fold in flour and baking powder and mix in chocolate and nuts and oil
Bake at 350 for 45 min the recipe I found said 30-35 min I opened oven door at 30 and it sank!!, so turned it up and left for another 10 min, and it was OK, doesn't look pretty but tastes good!

The Key when we mess up in the kitchen is to laugh it off and try again LOL

My little helper!


  1. Thanks for the mention Rebecca! I will be sure to make that turkey keema! Sounds delish. I love beef keema and I bet turkey keema will be another loved dish of mine.

    Lovely post!

  2. I've never heard of this. It sounds tasty!

    What a great helper you have there!

  3. The yogurt cake still sounds tasty. Yum on the keema :-)

  4. I love keema - I usually do it with lamb or beef - using turkey to bring down the fat content sounds brilliant. Is it something that Indians actually eat? I think of it as so British!

  5. Kamran: you are most welcome, Lamb is my favourite
    The ungourmet: I know she's so cute
    C.G: thanks
    Foodycat: yep keema is Indian, as I Brit we make meat and potatoes, or shepherds pie. But of course Indian spices are a big part of cuisine now LOL

  6. You have a beautiful helper!

  7. What an interesting blog. I am in the eastern part of NC and have been blogging since 2007. Never heard of keema, sounds intriguing. The yogurt cake sounds delicious with the white chocolate and nuts.

  8. new creative attempts are always fun! sometimes you win... and sometimes... no worries :D I'm glad you changed your blog URL, it's much easier to remember now :D I would always start typing chow and chatter in and then go darn... what is it again??

  9. That all sounds good! I have an award for you here

  10. Just found your site and love it, especially your sous chef!
    I might have to try there a vegetarian version you could help me out with?

  11. Erica: I know don't I just
    Steph: yep your right its a better url I agree, luckily have havn't lost everyone in the process!
    Kristen: thanks so much
    Special K: thanks for visiting will visit you too, oh you could just make it with a soya mince, I think its would be great


  12. Your husband's dish sounds great!

  13. One of my favorite dishes to make is Keema to admit...we are not too keen on beef or any red meat, although we do eat it from time to time. Keema is not one ofmy boy's favorite currys. But putting the keema into the bread (keema paratha) is great! That with a bit of dal....see now I had better leave and catch that plane or I'll put on my apron and start cooking again.

    I love that you cook all this variety. And I love your pics of your daughter. She is a little princess!

  14. Olga: I'll tell him
    Trish: wow you really know your Indian food, I just after being married to an Indian he he, wow keema paratha impressive
    thanks about Jasmine I adore her, can you tell!
    have a good trip Rebecca

  15. such a cute little helper! That keema sounds so good with all the lovely spices. That cake sounds good even though it fell, all that matters is it tastes delish!

  16. Yumm-the keema sounds great!!Lucky you Reb-hubby and Jas helping you in the kitchen :)

  17. Your husband sounds like a good cook! What a delicious dish he cooked up. I bet the cake is tasty anyways!

  18. Sweta: yep I am so lucky
