Panch phoran Tarkari/ Tripura Special/ Spicy mixed vegetable with 5 spices

Tripura cuisine is heavily influenced by its neghbouring state west bengal however the meat predominantly is pork. There are many varieties of dried fish that is used in the cooking.
I opted for the simple bengali style preparation using the famous panch phoran masala. The color and texture is deceptive of the taste it folds in it.
You have to make it to believe..

As we enter the last leg of our food odyssey across the Indian states, you need to dive into this bengali style curry to unfold the rest of the states
