If you want to try your hand at Bengali cooking, Panch Phoron is one of the first spice mixes you need to keep ready. Without Panch Phoron, Bengali cooking is just incomplete!

There is no roasting or grinding to make the Panch Phoron. It is just a combination of five seeds, which is always mixed and kept ready for tempering and other purposes.

Some of the tasty Bengali recipes made using this are Musur Dal and Papaya Tarkari .

Finally, i was also confused what is panch phoron and i hesitated to try Bengali curries, this made it easier and i made this and stored in air-tight container, now i use this frequently in my masalas.
