Panch Phoran literally means five spices that pop referring to the process that occurs during tempering. The blend is made of five spices – cumin seeds, fennel seeds, onion seeds, mustard seeds, and fenugreek seeds – which give a unique aroma and taste when added to dishes. It’s one of the most important spice blends in Bengali cuisine, and is widely used in curries and stir-fried dishes.
