A classic and colorful blend of exotic spices from Bengal, India, Bengali Five Spice (Panch Phoron) combines the most aromatic and savory flavors of the region and brings them to your home. Panch means “five” and phoron is “flavour” or “spice”, hence the common translation Bengali Five-Spice”.
Panch phoron is usually fried in oil or ghee before adding anything else to the pot, flavoring the oil and releasing the aroma of the oils in the seeds and causing them to pop in the pan. Other ingredients are added at this point, the mixture adding sweetness and bringing forward the flavors of vegetables, beef, fish or lentils.
Simmer spices in ghee or oil until they pop, which releases the bittersweet anise aromas of the blend. Then add vegetables or meats and cook. Add a tablespoon of Bengali Five Spice to lentils, potatoes, and fresh vegetables like cauliflower and broccoli.
