What is Ponk?
Ponk, as it is popularly known in Surat, India and surrounding areas is a variety of roasted millet available only in this part of the world. Ponk is usually available only during colder winter months, from November through February. This dry millet is then roasted under charcoal and are beaten out from the soft shelling.
Health Benefits of Ponk
Ponk is commonly eaten with the hull, which retains the majority of the nutrients. The plant is very high in fiber and iron, with a fairly high protein level as well. This makes it well suited to its use as a staple starch. Ponk are rich in antioxidants and all sorghum varieties are gluten-free, an attractive alternative for wheat allergy sufferers.
