Great recipe, glad to have another use for the panch phoran. I wasn't sure if you meant the panch phoron should be whole or ground. I opted to grind my mixture up, and was fairly heavy handed with the amount. Nice easy recipe, could be made super quick with pre-chopped squash. I added some chopped greens during the last few minutes of cooking, just for a little extra colour and nutrition....had as a main course with some brown rice...really nice!
