The Ponkh Bhel is a regional and seasonal speciality, made with a Gujarati delicacy called ‘ponkh’. During a brief period in the winter months, the jowar or white millet grain is very tender and juicy.

At this stage, it is called ponkh. These tender seeds are harvested and roasted or cooked in other ways. Generally, in the villages, the ponkh is picked from the fields and cooked then and there.

There is a general mood of celebration, a party is thrown, and friends, family and neighbours are invited to come and have a taste of this young seed!

Here, we have used juicy ponkh seeds to make a chatpata bhel, which everyone will relish. And it is so easy to make too – you just need to toss all the ingredients together!
