Panch Phoron (পাঁচ ফোড়ন )
Calling পাঁচ ফোড়ন (panch phoron) a Bengali five-spice-tempering sounds terribly inadequate. Panch phoron is pure magic. No one would look at the individual spices that go into the making of panch phoron, and guess how transformative it can be to the dish it is being added to. The smell of panch phoron, once it hits the hot oil, defies expectations. Bengalis put it in vegetable dishes, dals, chutneys, pickles, everywhere. Keep this mix handy, and add it to the oil for your vegetable stir-fry (check out our Panchmishali Torkari video for inspiration). You will never look back.

Phulkopi'r bora or Cauliflower Fritters or Gobi Pakora

These are the perfect fix for when you realise that you don't have anything to go with your day's dal. Even though they are deep-fried, as long as you fry them at the correct temperature, they don't absorb more oil than the dressing of your average salad.

We are all for eating healthy, but if you are cooking all the deep-fried food that you eat, you are far less likely to eat a lot (than if you were to delegate the task of deep-frying to a restaurant and stay in denial).

When invited to lunch in a Bengali household in winter, there is a high likelihood of finding Bhaja Moong Dal with wintry vegetables on the menu. What's not to love about this dal? The golden, roasted moong beans—soft yet each holding their shape—and bright green peas, orange carrots, and crunchy cauliflowers—this dal is as beautiful as it is wholesome.

Watch the recipe, and then treat yourself to it. And once you have, share the video with loved ones.
