How to Make Panch Phoran - Indian Five-Spice

Panch Phoran is a Bengali spice mixture used as a base flavour in many Indian dishes.  You can buy it in the UK in Asian supermarkets (that said, to this day I've never found here in Shropshire) but no worries, it's really easy to make.

My love of cooking and experimenting in the kitchen means I have more spices in my cupboard than you can shake a stick at - but the spices needed to make Indian five-spice are available in any good supermarket.

Picadillo - Mexican Fruity Chilli

Okay I know this sounds a bit odd, regular chilli made with the usual minced meat, but with the addition of banana, apples and raisins?.....

However, if you saw Thomasina Miers cooking this on her TV series 'Mexican Food made Simple' on Channel 5 then I'm pretty sure you'd want to make it too.  It was totally delicious, very hot but the heat is nicely balanced with the sweetness from the raisins.  Yes I will make this again and again.
