1. Poppy seeds have a unique flavor of its own, that's why in this dish not too much spices are used, the only spice has been used in it is turmeric, but that's also in a very e little amount should be used otherwise it would overlap the actual taste of poppy seeds. Actually in authentic Bengali aloo posto Turmeric isn't used.

2. Panch phoron which is actually Indian 5 whole spice blend, it has a nice aroma of it, so when the oil heats up after that you should add this otherwise the real aroma of it can't come out properly.

3. Panch phoron contains 5 types of Indian whole spices like Brown Mustard, Nigella, Fenugreek, Cumin, and Fennel. You can make it at home also, just add the same proportion of these 5 types of whole spices and the dry roasted it in a pan.

4. After adding the panch
