Industry Knowledge... Panch Phoran literally means Five Spices, but is not to be confused with the entirely different Chinese Five Spice Powder. Unlike Chinese Five Spice, Panch Phoran is almost always used whole, through a common indian cooking process known as "tempering" - the spices are lightly fried in hot oil / ghee until fragrant, and then the rest of the ingredients for cooking lentils or curry are added in.Panch Phoran typically consists of the holy grail of Indian seeds: Fenugreek, Cumin, Black Cumin (also known as kalonji, nigella sativa), Black Mustard Seeds and Fennel Seeds. Proportions vary from household to household, some use less fenugreek as it is more bitter, some use more cumin. In some parts of Bengal, a local seed similar to Ajwain, known as radhuni, is used in place of the mustard seeds. Other common substitutes include caraway seeds and basil seeds.
