Amma used to make a moist chocolate yogurt/curd cake...but then she lost the recipe :( recently I came across this wonderful space and found this recipe which is similar to my Amma's. Its been a long time since I made this wonderful cake and I made it for Homey's Birthday.
The cake is moist......perfectly chocolatey.....
