Like I said, Ponk is freshly harvested millet and is usually available in winter months of December and January. This is a snack, a picnic favorite and is only available in Gujarat. Thanks to technology, Ponk could be exported to Mumbai, where we were able to encounter and enjoy this freshly harvested grain. Super pricey, but surely a delicacy of the season. These are tiny soft, sweet, tender, green grains and are accompanied with crisp, spicy, chickpea flour noodles called Sev (pronounced as Save). Ponk and Sev go hand in hand. And, so does this Deep Food pack provide.
Check this video of Surti Ponk and how it is harvested.
A pack of frozen Ponk, a pack of spicy Sev noodles, a microwavable plastic bowl and a spoon.
These are frozen Ponk grains. As per instructions, I microwaved them for 60 seconds. This was not enough, so I microwaved for another 60 seconds. Tender, soft, grains were ready to eat.
Spicy Bikaneri Sev is an amazing pair with Ponk, and it comes in the pack. Crisp and deliciously fresh!
Since I wasn't sure how much would be inside the box, I bought a pack of Bikaneri Sev exported by Garvi Gujrat, another brand I like for traditional Gujarati snacks.
Here are super, tender, warm, sweet Ponk grains.
Served in a bowl mixed sprinkled with spicy Sev noodles.
I had an amazing first day of the New Year!
Wishing you all a year full of Food, Fun and Fitness!!
