How to Prepare
    • First of all, preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C).
    • Grease the cake pan with ghee or butter and dust a layer of flour in it.
    • Ground the pistachios in a blender or food processor.
    • Make sure you grind the pistachios finely.
    • Now in a mixing bowl whisk in the cake flour along with the baking soda, baking powder and salt. Keep the mixture aside.
    • In the same bowl, add the butter and sugar and whisk everything together at a high speed. You need to keep whisking until you get a smooth and creamy texture. This will usually take 2-3 minutes.
    • Now beat the egg whites into the same butter and sugar mixture.
    • After this, beat in sour cream along with almond and vanilla extract.
    • Beat well and then add milk and the green food coloring. Mix well until combined completely.
    • You may find the batter slightly thick and that's fine.
    • Now you need to pour the batter uniformly into the cake pan.
    • Bake for over 20-25 minutes or until the cakes are thoroughly baked.
    • Insert a toothpick into the cake to test for doneness.
    • If the toothpick comes out clean then the cake is baked completely. Otherwise, you need to bake it further.
    • Now let us go ahead with the frosting.
    • Slice a thin layer of cake to create a flat surface.
    • Now slice the cake into 2-3 layers. Take one layer of the cake and add frosting cream. Spread the frosting evenly. Add another layer of the cake and evenly spread the frosting cream on it.
    • Repeat the process until you have spread the frosting evenly on all layers of the cake. Apply the frosting on the sides of the cake and make it even.
    • Now garnish the cake with some berries and leftover pistachios. You can also add chocolates, if you wish.
    • Now refrigerate the cake for 20-30 minutes and then serve.
  • Beat well and then add milk and the green food coloring. Mix well until combined completely.
