Panchmel is a district in Gujarat bordering Rajasthan. But the word "panchmel" has been commonly used to denote a combination of five ingredients. A judicious mix of five vegetables - gavarfali, chawli, capsicum, cucumber and carrots -constitute the panchmel of this mouth-watering recipe. Tossed in aromatic spices, this dry vegetable preparation tastes fantastic when served with rotis or bhakris. Another distinct feature of this recipe and that of Rajasthani cooking is the use of amchur (dried mango powder) which enhances the tangy flavours of a dish in the absence of curds and tomatoes.
