Method of preparation:
Mix all the ingredients together and store them in a dry jar.
This is called panch phoran, used to enhance the flavors of any dish.
Rarely, panch phoran powder is used in pickles.
To make panch phoran powder, toast all the ingredients separately until aromatic.
Cool the ingredients to room temperature and grind them into fine powder.
Store the panch phoran powder tight in a dry jar and use when necessary.
Notes: Make sure not to burn any of the ingredients while toasting them.
