Though Panch Phoran is a very familiar spice of Bengal, but still many people, from other regions outside Bengal, have doubts about this spice mixture. Paanch phoran is a mixture of five whole spices which constitutes of equal proportions of Fenugreek seeds (Methi), Cumin seeds (Jeera), Nigella seeds (Kalonji), Fennel seeds (Saunf) and Radhuni (Trachyspermum Roxburghianum). Normally, in regions outside of West Bengal, Radhuni is replaced by Black Mustard seeds (Sorshe). In fact, the panch phoran masala that I have used contains black mustard seeds.

In this preparation, first I have pressure cooked the Jalpai (Indian Olives) and mashed them. While mashing the Olives, I have deseeded them as well. I always prefer Jalpai er Chatni without seeds. Many people love to lick the Olive seeds of Chutney. You can keep or discard the seeds according your preference.

Indian cuisine is very popular for different varieties of Chutneys. In every region, it has its own different style, texture, flavour and taste of chutneys. There are more than hundreds of chutney recipes in Indian cuisine. Indian chutneys cover almost all the tastes like sweet, salty, sour and chilli hot etc.

I always prepare Jalpai er Chatni with thick consistency. Many people prepare it with thin consistency too. You can add water according to your desired preference. I have used Fennel seeds and whole Dry Red Chilli for tempering. It gives a nice flavour to the Chutney. I have used Sugar in this preparation. Many people use Jaggery instead of Sugar. It does not affect much in taste. In this preparation, I have used roasted ground Panch Phoran masala.

For the roasted ground Panch Phoran masala, first I have taken a dry pan and added the Panch Phoran spices. Then in low flame I have dry roasted them for 2-3 minutes until the nice aroma comes out. In this process, we need to stir the spices continuously, else the spices can get burnt. Then I kept the spices aside and allow them to get cool. After that I have grinded the spices in a grinder. Now-a-days Roasted Panch Pharan masala powder is available in many shops. You can get it from there too.

Sweet-tangy chutneys are very famous in Bengali cuisine. It is normally served between Main Course and Dessert. In any Bong celebration, people consider it incomplete without chutney. In fact, any reputed Bengali restaurants would always add one sweet-tangy chutney in their Thali meals. Sweet-tangy chutneys are mostly prepared with raw Mangoes, Pineapples, Tomatoes, Papayas, Jujube fruit and many more.
