“A truly healthy snack cake! This makes a large panful - cut into squares it keeps well in the fridge in a sealed container for a few days and makes a light but satisfying snack, or breakfast, or picnic munchie. This recipe comes from an Indian cooking website, the name of which I have lost. If you recognize this recipe and know who invented it, please let me know!”
