|1/2 cup Ponk /Green jowar|
|1 Green chilli|
|1 tbsp Lemon juice|
|to taste Salt|
Life is bliss when you have friends who travel across country with some special ingredients for you. Though the ingredient I am mentioning is perishable, She brought it from Ahmedabad. Vaishali brought winter greens from there , which we can never see in Chennai. Ponk is nothing but tender jowar. Vaishali knew that I would hunt for recipes , so she instantly suggested that I make a fresh salad out of this.
I have tasted ponk 40 years ago. We lived in interior Karnataka then. We would be taken on a small excursion to the near by friend where jowar was grown. They would harvest it fresh and give us. They called it as Seethni. I miss those days and Vaishali helped me reliveand cherish those days. Thank you Vaishali.
This salad can be put together easily as everything in this is fresh and raw. She said we could yop with with sev to make it bhel and I will reserve it for the next time
