Homemade Ng Heong Fun ~ five spice powder

This recipe for homemade five spice powder is quite simple and the ingredients needed are common spices that most of us already have in our pantry. I like to grind my own ng heong fun as I find that it brings out the full flavour in a dish and the whole kitchen smells of beautiful spices. Most of the ready made ones from the shop does not have much fragrance and sometimes does not do a recipe justice.

homemade ng heong fun ~ 5 spice powder
2 tsp szechuan peppercorn
8 star anise
½ tsp ground clove
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp ground fennel

1. Roast the szechuan peppercorn for 3 minutes by shaking it in a pan over low to medium heat until the aroma of the peppercorns is released .
2. Grind the roasted peppercorn and star anise in a spice or coffee grinder.
3. Strain the above.
4. Mix in the cloves, cinnamon and fennel.
