Five Seed Roasted Potatoes

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!
