Panki is an all-time favourite traditional Gujarati snack, which can be thought of as thin and tasty pancakes cooked between banana leaves to get a unique, rustic aroma. This innovative panki recipe is a zero-oil variant, made with a batter of sprouted moong, oats and other flours, flavoured simply and elegantly with green chillies and coriander.

Cooking between banana leaves is a must, because that is what gives the Moong Sprouts Panki its authentic aroma and flavour. However, you must remember to spread the batter a little thickly in this case, because this recipe has absolutely no oil, and therefore thin pancakes will not peel off easily from the banana leaves. It is also important to serve this sumptuous and fibre-rich snack immediately, before it becomes stiff.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Payal, Banana leaf is available everywhere and it gives a great flavour but if you just dont have it then steam in a dhokla thali and see

I have always had rice panki as that is the famous in Gujarati cuisine. I was very excited while making this recipe using multi-nutrient sprouts and fibre rich oats. I salute your culinary sense of combining ingredients to make tasty delicacies which are healthy.
