Who could go past a dish called ‘Ponk’?  I just had to try it and it turned out to be a lovely spicy dish which uses grains that are like eating a cross between barley and baby peas.

Very easy to prepare you can just microwave for 1 minute or leave out to defrost for a few hours then sprinkle on the chickpea noodles.

Describes itself as an: “Extraordinary mix of tender green sorghum grains, crunchy chickpea noodles and choice spices. Serves 2.”

Ingredients: Green Sorghum Grains and Sev (Chickpea Noodles): Chickpea Flour, Corn Oil, Spices, Salt, Citric Acid, Asafoetida.
