Mix all the ingredients of dough and knead it well for 10 mins until you get soft, stretchy and velvety dough. Now place the dough in a big bowl and cover it and rest it for 2 to  4 hours at room temperature.( you have to take big bowl since the dough will double as you have the yeast.) or you can store it overnight in the fridge and  use it next day.

Preheat the oven for 30 mins at max temperature before baking. In the mean while divide the dough into small equal size balls.. and let it rest for another 10 mins on the counter. After 10 mins take one of the dough ball and roll it in the circle or oval shape as you like.. the thickness should be about 2-3 mm and then transfer them to baking sheet. Repeat the same with the rest of the dough balls.

In a bowl mix fresh cream and yogurt in a small bowl, add the nutmeg, salt and pepper and mix well.

Now evenly and generously spread the mixture of fresh cream and yogurt on the base leave  a small border around the edge so that it will turn into golden brown in color, then add rest of the toppings.  Do the same on the other base as well. ( If you are going to bake only one at a time then add the toppings mixture one by one otherwise it will become soggy ) Now put it in the oven and bake at 180 degree for about 12 mins or until the edges are golden brown in color and the base is crisp.   Serve immediately once it’s ready .

Note:

Once you have kneaded the dough and if the dough is still sticking to your hand add little flour and then mix it..

Traditionally chili flakes are not added in this recipe… but Since I like spicy I added it.. 🙂 and also I have roasted for about 15 mins.. which made it really crisp…

1. Sieve maida ,baking powder and baking soda
2. Beat ghee and sugar till it become smooth (You can also use Mixi to do this if you don’t have the hand mixer which is normally used by professionals )
3. Add the sieved maida, baking powder and baking soda to the smooth paste of ghee and sugar and beat well till it become smooth ( i do it in mixie).
4. Now grease your tray with oil or ghee and pour the smooth paste into it.
5. Let it cook for 30 to 45 minutes on medium flame.
6. Check the cake by inserting toothpick or knife if it comes clear then it’s cooked. Let it cool before assembling it with fondant.

Note that your cake must be completely cooled because fondant will melt if placed on hot cake and do not refrigerate cake with fondant it will become sticky.

STEP 2:  MAKING FONDANT (VEGETARIAN)
MAKES ABOUT 1 KG FONDANT

Ingredients

¼ cup water or fresh cream or milk ( I Used amul cream)
2 tbsp Agar Agar powder/flakes (this is vegetarian .gelatin is not vegetarian)
½ cup Light Corn Syrup (Karo Light Corn Syrup)
3 tbsp Butter (for a more white fondant use Veg Shortening)
1 ½ tbsp Glycerin (Wilton Glycerin)
700 grams to 1kg powder sugar / Confectioners sugar
1 tsp Clear Vanilla or other flavouring.

Method

Dissolve Agar Agar flakes in Fresh cream or water. Let bloom. Heat in microwave at 30 sec interval until dissolved. If you have lumps – strain the mixture.
Working quickly – add Butter, light corn syrup and glycerin to the mixture.
Add Vanilla and any food color if making the whole batch in one color.(it’s better to keep white fondant later as required color could be added)
Add powder sugar – One cup at a time up to 700 grams or until you have a pliable dough. Note: Do not add too much powder sugar as the fondant will stiffen as it rest. If made with Fresh cream it uses less powder sugar while water uses more powder sugar.
Let rest in the fridge for a couple of hours. Bring to room temperature. Knead well before you use.

Leftover fondant can be stored in freezer for 9 months note that fondant is wrapped properly and is stored in airtight container. Next time whenever required take it out of freezer before 3 or 4 hours use after it get to room temperature.

Tip:

In order to prevent the Ribbon to break or crack in the folds you can stuff tissue in between and remove it at the end.
