Quick Rice Panki steamed in between banana leaves is a favourite Gujarati snack. Urad dal flour helps to bind the panki batter and make very thin pankis. Serve the pankis hot from the tava and let your guests peel off the banana leaves and enjoy the steaming hot pankis with spicy green chutney.

  4. Place 2 greased banana leaves on a flat surface with the greased side facing upwards.
  5. Put 1 tbsp of the batter on each banana leaf and cover each roundel with a greased banana leaf facing downwards.

I have tried this many times..first of all when I go to market they are two types of banana tree leaves ..so when we buy we have to ask them leaves for preparing Panki ....secondly adding a little of haldi and coriander enhances the taste🤗 and look😍...kids just love it..

If we dont have banana leaves and want to prepare it for unexpexted guests, can it be done by spreading it on the tava like a chilla/pancake?
