Innovation is not just about finding new recipes every time. It is about rethinking old recipes with new ingredients and new cooking methods. That is how the microwave version of panki came to be. Much-loved by almost everybody, a panki is also a filling and wholesome snack that is easy to make, easy to have. In a microwave it becomes even easier! however, even if the means and methods are new, some aspects of tradition are to be maintained—all said and done, a panki is best baked between banana leaves. So, make sure you find some. Serve hot to enjoy it at its best.

  6. Place them on a microwave safe dish and microwave on high for 2 minutes or keep on high till the panki leaves the sides of the banana leaves.

A light snack, which is so healthy. The flavor of the banana leaf is very nice. The cucumber added to batter, keeps the panki moist for long. This is a perfect evening snack.

the soya panki turned out to be a great dish. a little more water had to be added in order to get the perfect batter. this could also be eaten by putting it on a pan without the leaaves
