My mother and I tried out this recipe. Everyone loved it. We didn''t have banana leaves so we tried deep frying the pankis . They turned out to be very delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Corn panki has besan. I''m allergic to besan so please suggest a replacement that I can use instead of besan.

   Hello, You can try using rice flour instead of besan. Besan is used to give binding. Though we have not tried it with rice flour, you can surely try this recipe and share your review with us.

   Hi Anjul, The specialty of panki is that it is cooked on a banana leaf. If you want you can try cooking it directly on tava but it wont be a panki. It will be more like a chila. Do try this recipe and share your revieww ith us.

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..
