*In a mixer jar, put the biscuits and grind until they turn into a fine powder. Transfer the powdered biscuits to a medium-sized bowl.

*Add half a cup of milk to the powder and mix it until it becomes a thick batter. Once done, add the other half of the cup and mix it thoroughly.

*Take a cake tin and grease it with butter. Meanwhile, add a tablespoon of baking powder to the batter and transfer it to the greased tin.

*Top it with nuts of your choice or choco chips (optional). Now place the tin inside the heated idli cooker. Ensure that the tin is half immersed in water.

*Let it sit for 25 minutes on medium flame. Now insert a toothpick to check if it comes out clean. If it does, it is time to let the cake tin cool down so that you can transfer it to your plate and enjoy!
