Corn panki is a popular Gujarati snack made of a corn and rawa mixture that is cooked between two banana leaves – pankis lure the diner with the innate aroma of fresh leaves which get incorporated into the pankis when they are cooked. In fact, pankis get their name because they are made in a paan (leaf). The rawa and corn combination is used in a different way to make this novel snack, which is very healthy as it is steamed. And of course, it is extremely tasty too, with coriander and green chillies enhancing the flavour further.

Corn panki.. i have tried this recipe for the first time.. i was so happy with the result. The best part is these corn panki is light, soft.. just melts in the mouth.. the sweet taste of the corn.. gives a balanced taste to the panki.. And it has just 2 tsp oil.. which is really good for those who consume less oil..
