"From Cook Smart Vegetarian, looks good and saving here till I can get to try. Sounds great for diabetics as it uses sweet potatoe. Wikepedia describe panch phoron as equal amounts of fenugreek, nigella seeds, mustard seeds, fennel and cumin."

"I made this tonight with half sweet potato and half diced chat potatoes. I concocted my own panch phoron and added my home grown coriander and a bit extra sea salt. It smelled and tasted excellent."
"Delish!!! A keeper!"
"I totally agree with the previous reviewer...... the spice mixture (panch phoron) makes this fabulous!!! I made my own panch phoron using your instructions in the recipe intro. It's one of the finest spice mixtures I've ever tasted and goes so well with the sweet potatoes, onions, garlic and cilantro. I can tell that I'll be making this often. I'm in love! Thanx for posting!"
"Have to say the spicing made this a great dish. A mixture of familiar and unfamiliar flavors. I am also a newcomer to panch phoron but that will not stay that way for long. I'm not a fan of cilantro so I left it out, added the bit of salt LP suggested and served it with a non-vegetarian lamb curry and a wonderful garden salad."
"Great side dish with mild and interesting flavours -- and wonderful aromas. This is the first time I have used panch phoron, but not the last. Made this as written, using 3 cloves of garlic. Added some salt, which I thought was essential. Thanks Pat."
