My Measurements

Since cup measurements differ from country to country, here are my personal measurements:


1 cup flour = 120gm

1 cup milk  = 200ml

1 cup butter/margarine = 225gm

1 cup sugar = 200gm

1 cup rice = 185gm


1 tbsp butter = 15gm

1 tbsp baking powder = 15gm

1 tsp baking powder = 5gm

1 tsp yeast = 3gm

1 tbsp yeast = 10gm

    Salam Fauzia. I am a little confused about your measurement for semolina. For dhokla, I think you had said we can use the flour measurement which is 1 cup=120 gm which means 1 1/4 will be 150 gm. But here in the comments thread, you said 1 1/4 cup semolina is around 200 gm. Is it different for different recipes ? Can you plz verify ? Also, if it’s not too much trouble can you plz add a note in the measurements section about semolina also ? That would be really helpful for confused people like me :). Thank you in advance :)!

      W/Salaam, I normally use my standard measuring cup so am not very sure about the weight. But on google it says a cup of semolina is about 160-170gm. So best to invest in some good measuring cups which will make it a lot easier as you will not need to weigh the ingredient. 🙂

  • Sorry just want to confirm
    Sorry just want to confirm Fauzia – when you said you use your standard measuring cup , that means your 200 ml one right? The one you use for liquids. And Jazakallah for always answering our questions patiently 🙂

      Well I actually have a separate set of cups for DRY ingredients, so it does not have ml markings. But yes the same cup does hold 200 ml of liquid.

    • Hi, use a measuring cup if
      Hi, use a measuring cup if you have one or measure out 15 tbsp. Never melt butter unless the recipe specifically requires melted butter.
