Spice Magic ® PANCH PHORAN EASTERN INDIA and BANGLADESH CUSINE
Panch Phoron (also known as panch phoran or paanch phoron, Bengali Five Spice, Padkaune Masala) literally means five spices.
A spice blend commonly used in Eastern India and Bangladesh.
It contains the following seeds: Cumin, Brown Mustard, Nigella, Fennel and Fenugreek.
The spices are always left whole and, depending on how they’re being used, are either dry roasted or fried in oil in order to coax out their pungent flavours.
A must have for authentic Indian stews, on vegetables, and breads.
Being mildly bittersweet, warm, and nutty, it has none of the heat that one would normally associate with the food and spices of the region.
Panch Phoron is delicious as a rub for meats, added to Indian stews, sprinkled on vegetables, or breads.
it can be used as an addition to pickling liquid instead of the typical coriander or dill, to make a kickass crust on pork or other meat of your choice, or to season baked vegetables, or even to make plain rice a little more interesting.
An amazing spice blend and there's really no adequate words to describe its flavour.
You can be sure that what ever dish it is added to will also add wonderful depth and flavour.
Also speculated to have deep roots in Eastern medicine such as Ayurveda.
