Pandoli is a Gujarati snack cooked in a unique style using a double boiler. Chola dal reinforces this recipe with nutrients like protein , calcium , iron and folic acid.

However, it is very important to soak the dal for a few hours to increase its digestibility. You can also make pandolis in moulds. I have added spinach to make the pandolis interesting and colourful; actually, you can add any leafy vegetable of your choice.

Enjoy this healthy steamed snack with Healthy Green Chutney or Healthy Coconut Chutney .
