Five Seed Roasted Potatoes

Posted by on September 25, 2012

This fabulous twist on roasted potatoes generously comes to us from chef Jerry Traunfeld of Poppy restaurant here in Seattle. The spice mix is a version of Panch Phoron a.k.a. Bengali Five Spice, using ajwain seed in place of fennel.  I made this for a celebratory Sunday evening feast after enjoying  the sunny afternoon harvesting potatoes.  Lots of love went into growing our potatoes this year and it was a joy to toss them with this exquisite mixture.  Thanks, Jerry!
