hurda bhajji or hurda pakoras 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 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.

if you are looking for more pakora recipes then do check chana dal pakora, moong dal bhajiya, batata bhajji, lauki pakora, paneer pakora and spinach fritters.
