Thank You dear! ur sweet words created lovely positive vibrations :)
looking at those sweet green kernels was pure joy, has been a few years since i last tasted them!
A Hurda party, as we called it, was something I always looked forward to in winters :) amcha mali jameenit ek mottha khadda karaycha and it is roasted underground, nanatar mali bua used to rub it in his palms to get rid of extra stuff and serve it HOT!
ooh! am getting goosebumps thinking of it :)

Musy, I updated the post - check out the link to Jyotsna's blog. Young jowar is green in color and that's what paunk is. Since these seeds had been dried, I think they lost some of their color.

Richa, you never cease to amaze me. I call it like I see it.

I haven't seen paunk here before either. I wondered how long it had been sitting on those shelves but quite frankly, I didn't care! I wanted it and it didn't taste old at all. Not quite the taste of tender fresh paunk but almost there!

u r too kind with ur words, manisha "blush"
fresh jowari eaten in winter, is also known as HURDA
it is greenish in color.
it is served with roasted winter veg and about 13 types of chutnies, atleast that is how i remember eating it, pure blisss!!
thanks for reminding @ it.
i'm so going to look for it in the stores, wonder how it missed my 'najar' all these days ;)
i remember discussing hurda with ET, she had asked me to blog about it which i never got around to.
hugs to ya!

2007-10-22T01:27:00.000-06:00

he he, that was a fun quiz :-D. you think too highly of me ;).

but this looked really translucent to me to be bajra. never seen jowar whole grain, just the flour :). Anjali's pointer makes sense to me.

2007-10-22T00:18:00.000-06:00

I take lessons from the best. Therefore no prizes. But seriously, you must have had paunk? Or at least heard of it?

I've been told that it is jowar seeds only and not a mixture of jowar and bajra seeds. If you can confirm one way or another and let me know, I will update the post accordingly.

Yes, Anajali - she makes a tough quiz, and no prizes either!

Anita, she has mixed it. It is Jowar the pearl like ones and the darker ones are bajra ofcourse. Manisha any prizes for this? Anita and me can share :).

2007-10-21T23:14:00.000-06:00

Not citrus seeds. Nor corn. It's much smaller.

Richa and Anita have got it. It is millet. The jowar kind.

And,
Richa, it looks dry because it is dried. And between you and Musical, I think you have the whole food world covered!

This is usually eaten fresh (not dried) in the winter months. Any clue what this is called? Apart from jowar (sorghum) seeds, that is!
:-)



...and to throw us off, did you mix it with jowar?...

Musical, I don't believe this! It's just not possible! In my post, I was going to include "Musical, please abstain from saying what this is!" Seriously? You mean I found something you don't know about?! I am feeling soooo clever, right now, I tell you! ;-)

[does virtual cartwheels]



No clue! Could have been corn, but it isn't!
