Method : Sieve flour & baking soda together.Add milk & mix thoroughly -if 1.25 cup milk is less,make it 1.5 cups milk.The batter must have drop down consistency.Make paste of dates by immersing dates in milk & crushing them once they turn soft.Add a mashed ripe banana to the milk,flour date mixture.Now add oil.Mix well.Lastly, add the grated dry fruits & mix well.
Grease a dish with oil & pour the cake mixture into the greased dish.Microwave on high without lid, in the greased dish for 7 minutes.Allow the cake to stand in the oven for 5-10 minutes.
Take out the dish after that.Again, allow it to cool for 15-20 minutes outside.Now turn the dish upside down on a plate.The cake will come on to the plate.Cut into desired shapes & serve .
