Chola Dal Panki, this popular Guajarati snack has been tweaked by using chola dal instead of rice flour to increase the protein, iron and fibre content. Adding palak gives a nice green colour and also enhances the fibre, folic acid and vitamin A content, all of which make this dish light and filling too.
