if you are unacquainted about these tender sorghum, then i have written quite a bit in my post on hurda bhel recipe, which i had added some days back. other recipes i make with hurda are:

these bhajjis or pakoras are made exactly like we make the regular pakoras. just mix besan/gram flour, green chilies, onions, ginger with the hurda or ponk and the pakoras are ready to be fried. they have a different bite texture wise as the jowar gives a nice tender crunch in the pakoras.

the hurda bhajjis can be served with peanut thecha, green chilli thecha or just a simple coriander chutney or tamarind chutney or tomato ketchup. we also sometimes have a cup of hot tea with pakoras.
