I have taken this recipe from a book Encyclopedia of Asian Food, Periplus Editions,1998, From Charmaine Solomon's A blend of five spice seeds which are added whole to the oil in the first stage of cooking .One or two teaspoons are added to chopped or diced vegetables. The usual method is to slice an onion or two finely, fry in fat, add vegetables and panch phora, cover with water then simmer till the vegetables are soft


  1. Combine in a glass jar or any jar .Shake before use to ensure seeds are evenly mixed as the heavier seeds tend to gravitate to the bottom.
