 For soaking nuts:

1.      Chopped the Dry fruits and nuts.  ( I use tutti frutti, dried currants, figs, dates, candied orange  golden raisins, apricots, cherries, cashews, walnut and almonds)
2.      Than mix all in a glass jar add in orange juice cover and soaked for overnight or up to 36 hours.

1.      Preheat the oven to 180 C. Grease and line the bottom and sides a  two cake pan. 2 8 (I used one round 9”pan and one 10” rectangle pan)  Set aside.
2.      Shift the flour, baking powder and baking soda twice. Set aside.

4.      In a bowl, add room temperature yogurt and sugar, beat till the sugar is almost dissolved. Add vinegar and mix well.
5.      Leave aside for 5 minutes, and you will find that bubbles/fizz appear on the top.
6.      Add the vegetable oil, mix well. Slowly fold in the flour without over mixing. Fold the flour into the batter till it is incorporated.
7.      Sprinkle 2 tablespoon flour over the soaked dry fruits and fold them into the batter lightly.
8.      Do not over mix or over beat the batter.
