Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix flour, baking powder and baking soda and keep aside for later.

To the cooled pani pol mixture, add roasted semolina, grated lime peel, salt, dried plums, dates and vanilla, and combine well.

Next, gradually fold the flour mixture into the pani pol mixture along with chopped cashews.

Add the batter to a baking tray lined with parchment paper and evenly spread the batter.
