Hurda bhajji or Hurda pakora recipe – easy to make crisp golden fritters from tender fresh sorghum or jowar. So before the season of these fresh green jowar ends, I am adding this post.
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 bhajji or pakora 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 bhajji can be served with peanut thecha, green chilli thecha or just a simple coriander chutney or tamarind chutney or tomato sauce. We also sometimes have a cup of hot ginger tea with pakoras.
