I am back again today with a super easy recipe and which is also one of my favourite vegetarian dish. Panch Phoran Potato Brinjal Fry is easy and quick to prepare and at the same time taste delicious and flavourful.
Panch phoran is an Indian five spice blend – fenugreek seeds, nigella seeds, fennel seeds, cumin seeds and mustard seeds. It is one of the most used spice ingredients in Eastern India especially in a Bengali household.
Panch phoran is easily available in grocery stores. Not getting them in grocery stores of your area? Not to worry, you can make it at home. Just mix the above mentioned five spices in equal proportion and store it. Simple as it is.
I love this combo of vegetable. Potato and brinjal are in the list of my favourite vegetables and quite regular in my home. Potato Cauliflower Curry is another combo I love and a regular vegetarian dish in my kitchen. But when it comes to brinjal, I know lots of people who do not enjoy it but I have always liked it. I personally loved eggplant in every form!
Here panch phoran is the hero of the dish. The aroma in the dish from panch phoran is heaven. It adds a lot of aroma and flavor to the dish.
