• Take 1 ½ cup of all-purpose sifted flour in the large bowl.

• Add 2/4 cup sugar and 1 cup curd (plain yoghurt) in another large bowl.

• Whisk it well until smoothen. Add 1 teaspoon baking powder and ½ teaspoon baking soda after mixing.

• Take the preciously sifted all-purpose flour and add it in the mixture.

• Mix it well using a spatula or a wired whisk.

• Pour the mixture into the previously greased pan. Finally, place it in the preheated oven and bake for around 40 minutes at the same temperature until the top looks brown.
