Panch phoron is a mix of five seeds, which is a must-have in every Bengali kitchen. Sometimes the panch phoron is tempered whole, whereas in recipes like this they are crushed coarsely and used.
This Bengali Style Jackfruit Curry is tempered with panch phoron masala in mustard oil, both of which are responsible for the curry’s unique flavour and appetizing aroma.
Curds and tomato puree give this dry curry a lip-smacking tanginess, while a blend of spice powders adds to its tongue-tingling taste.
The traditional curry is super delicious, and you will really enjoy it with rice or Luchi.
