It has been recently discovered that chana dal is a very beneficial pulse for diabetics as it helps in the utilization of sugar effectively causing a slow rise in blood sugar levels because of its low glycemic index. This recipe makes use of soaked chana dal mixed with vitamin rich vegetables and protein rich curds to enhance its taste. Grated ginger and green chillies add the much-needed spice to the pancakes. Cook these pancakes over a slow flame as the chana dal is coarsely ground and will take a while to cook well.

I want to try making this; I''ve got the chana dal soaking. What do you serve with the pancakes, or do you top them with anything?
