five spice powder

My Five-Spice Powder Blend ผงพะโล้


  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1 piece star anise
  • 20 pieces whole cloves (see note)
  • 1 tsp sichuan peppercorns (optional)
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds (optional)

Ingredients and Kitchen Tools I Use


* The toasting step is optional, but it will be beneficial especially in soups where the spices will not be exposed to high heat.

  1. In a dry skillet, add all of the whole spices and toast over medium high heat until the coriander seeds darken slightly and there is smoke coming up from the pan. Pour immediately onto a plate to cool
  2. Put the spices in a coffee grinder, add the cinnamon and grind until fine. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.

  • In the video it says "1 tsp" cloves which is a mistake!
