Panch Phoran is a savory and slightly bitter blend that is highly versatile. This recipe uses the blend to its full advantage. You can substitute the Brussels sprouts for kale or green cabbage.
Cook Brussels sprouts in salted, boiling water until al dente (7 to 8 minutes).
With a colander, drain sprouts and let sit. Do not rinse.
Heat a frying pan to medium heat. Brown Panch Phoran in oil for 20-30 seconds. Add bacon and garlic. Cook one minute, stirring constantly.
Add Brussels sprouts to frying pan mixture and cook several minutes. Keep stirring.
Add vinegar and pepper. Cook one minute more. Serve.
