This recipe makes a dense cake. Hence I am calling it a torte. 

The doggies loved it and are still begging for more
Ingredients:
  • 4 cups cooked Channa
  • 3 eggs
  • 10 tsp  til / seasame oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (Any of these or even a mix of these will work: Penut, Cashew, Almonds, Til/Sesame)
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 30 gms butter
  • Honey to taste
Method:
  1. Grind the Channa in a mixie. As you do this, add the oil & egg slowly. 
  2. Soften the butter, dice it and add it to channa. Blend in
  3. Add the nuts, hone, herbs and fold in
  4. Spread on butter paper on a baking dish, about 3/4 inch deep
  5. Bake at 210 degree C for 35 – 40 mins (Test by sticking a fork in and when it comes out clean, it’s done). 
  6. Turn off over and let it rest in the hot oven for 10 minutes
  7. Remove, let it cool and cut into cubes
Serving:
  • Cut the full cake into 4 big portions and cut up each portion into 8 cubes
  • For every 4 kg body weight of the dog, serve 1 cube of the torte per day. So if your dog is about 15 kgs, then feed around 4 pieces a day
  • Ideally feed the torte 30 minutes before a carb heavy meal and watch your baby crash in a happy nap after the meal.
