Thari pola (Semolina cake)/ Thari kums - with stepwise picture

 Updated with new photos and stepwise picture enjoy....

As name indicate it's made with semolina. It's origin is Malabar. You can find so many varieties of 'pola' preparation in Malabar, like mutta pola, kadalakka pola and ari pola. I think pola is regional name of cake, I am not sure..... 


1/2 cup Semolina                                              

3 Eggs                                                             

5-6 tbsp Sugar                                                

1 tsp Vanilla powder / cardamom powder           

1 tbsp Ghee
