Panch Phoran, which is also known as panch phoron and panch puran is a traditional Bengali spice blend. It consists of equal amounts of five spices. The word "paanch" is Bengali for five and "phoron" means spice. This seasoning has a bittersweet flavor and is very aromatic. It is generally used to flavor vegetable dishes and is added to the cooking oil before other ingredients are added.

Silver Cloud's Panch Phoran contains cumin, mustard seed, fenugreek, fennel seed and nigella seed (black onion). This seasoning is gluten, salt and sugar-free.

Why Buy Your Spices at Silver Cloud Estates?

Why buy spices online when they are so readily available at your local store? The answer is quality and price. The spices sold at your local store are often a year or two old. As spices age, they loose much of their flavor. Silver Cloud's spices are always fresh, never old. Our products are also an excellent value. When you need spices, click on Silver Cloud Estates for the freshest products at great prices.

Vanilla bean and extract prices have increased significantly this year. This is due to a smaller than expected crop in Madagascar last year. This was aggravated by early picking and the vacuum packing of uncured beans. While short term the news is not good, the 2016 flowering was excellent and we anticipate a good harvest. This may lead to some price softening, but with the strong demand for vanilla we have seen it is hard to say how much relief we will see. We will know more later this year as new crop, cured beans become available. Best case we do not anticipate any significant reduction in price before the end of the 1st quarter of 2017.
