Panch Pooran, Indian Five Spice Mix
Also known as Panch Phoran, this is a mix of five whole spices, used for tempering or 'tarka' of various dishes, specially in Bengal and Bihar regions of India and Bangladesh. North Indians are more likely to use it in making pickles. The fragrance of the dishes cooked with it is quite different from the traditional North Indian dishes, cooked using any one of these spices on their own. Make a small quantity, until you get familiar with the falvour.
(Panch=5, Phoran=the things that crackle/jump/break)
