Hurda Party Locations
December 2016 ~ Jan 2017 season
Traditionally hurda party is arranged at own farm or relative / friend farm ! But today it’s difficult to own a farm which is near to house … that’s history now !!! Either me or you don’t own a farm nor have a farmer friend … so best is to search for places and enjoy Hurda season.
But difficulty is to find good places providing quality hurda, so this year when I went to Gokhale farm (near Alandi), I came to know that they are no more doing this business 🙁
So alternative was to go to Ahemadnagar which is @ 110 kms away from my home. Obviously I can not go there frequently so my hunt started for hurda party places near Pune !
The HURDA price starting from ~ 125 Rs per kg last year is now soaring like anything !! and you need at least 3~4 Kg for 5 persons …
What is HURDA party ?
Jowar crop (Sorghum) grows in most of the regions of Maharashtra. Somewhere in month of December to January tender stalks of Jowar (Sorghum) are ready in farms.
So these tender jowar (Sorghum) stalks are roasted / barbecued in hot coal ashes & then the roasted tender Jowar (Sorghum) is called as HURDA.
So this HURDA is then served along with Chataney (desiccated coconut garlic with dried red chili) and curd.
Hurda is really very tasty and you will really enjoy this Hurda party.

So instead of going to hotel in city this week end why don’t to think of this outing on a farm, giving tasty food, the clean air, showing your children the grown crops. let them interact with the mud, insects, animals, let them be part of the Hurda roasting activity, I am sure they will enjoy it. Remember your old days where this was available everywhere & now limited to the villages.
So let this be a wonderful & memorable family outing this weekend !
Enjoy the Hurda party this year December to January !
