I first made this cake during deepavali. It came out well and the taste was tempting. People won't stop with one piece. Actually i got this recipe from internet only. But added cashew and saffron strands. I used fresh grated coconut and finely chopped cashews.

Bengal gram flour - 1 cup ( use the same measurement cup for flour, sugar, milk & ghee)
Sugar - 2 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 cup (keep little more if required you can add)
Grated coconut - 1 cup
Cardamon powder - 1/2 tsp
Saffron strands - few (soaked in little milk) 
Cashew - 10 to 15 ( finely chopped)

In a plate coat 2 tbsp of ghee both in the base and side of the plate. While slightly liquid and thick pour into the plate (don't wait till ball consistency because it will become more rough after cooling).

In a big plate pour little water and keep aside. After pouring the cake dough using a flat laddle or spatula (coated with ghee) flatten the dough quickly else it will start ticking to the laddle.
Keep this plate in the bigger plate with little water so the cooling process will be quick. When slightly cooled coat a knife with little ghee (to avoid sticking) and make pieces on the cake dough.
