Panch Phoron is a whole spice blend, originating from the Indian subcontinent, used widely in the cuisine of Bangladesh, Eastern India & Southern Nepal. The name literally means ‘five spices‘ in Bengali.

All of the spices in Panch Phoron are seeds. Ours is a beautiful blend of cumin seeds, nigella seeds, fennel seeds, black MUSTARD seeds & fenugreek seeds.

Unlike most spice mixes, panch phoron is always used whole & never ground. It is traditionally used with vegetables, chicken, curries, fish, lentils & even in pickles. If you do try & grind it, someone is going to knock on your door & take it off you. Maybe.

Panch Phoron is typically fried in oil or ghee, which causes it to begin ‘popping’; this technique is known as ‘tempering’. Then, other ingredients are added to the fried spices to be coated in the mixture. It is the perfect way to begin a curry, tempering the spices this way, then adding finely diced onion to allow the flavours to mingle before adding the rest of the ingredients.

For a twist on the classic, try sprinkling 1 tsp over potatoes before roasting.

Like so many in our range, this is another that’s sugar-free, gluten-free, paleo & vegan too. With no fillers or anything artificial, our unique blend of herbs & spice create the purest, freshest flavour possible to give your food attitude. 

This makes it ‘free’ on all the slimming plans we know of.
