The Sorceress of Spices – Panch Phoron

Panch Phoron

The recipe for this interesting spice mix comes from Sandeepa, who calls it The Sorceress of Spices. Read Barbara’s lyrical post about it!

Panch Phoron is a classical Bengali spice mix used in tempering. It’s added to the hot oil before other ingredients, to flavour the oil. I used it in a very simple potato, carrot and runner beans curry.
