Tea cake, Yellow cake, Plain cake or pela muraba cake is another famous tea time treat in Pakistan. In villages i saw people serving this cake as a compulsory item with tea. I can not forget the aroma and taste of Doodh Patti chai and cake served at my maid’s house which they cooked on coals.This recipe is very easy and simple adopted from a friend, Rabia Faizan’s page.
Now i am taking you all to my Maid’s village Shakardirah.Villagers are very simple people. My maid gathered her neighbors when we reached her home. She was very excited to introduce us with them.

All vegetables are purely organic and home grown. She told me they grow all vegetables of daily use at home.You can see Onion plants in above picture.
