This spice combination is very aromatic and it will transport you to the east to the first mouthful, I have understood that number five talks about more to than the mixture contains the five elements (air, earth, water, fire and ether) and not necessarily to that it takes only five species, in fact are many versions of this prescription, although all includes the starred anise and some type of pepper.
2 teaspoons of pepper szechuan or black
6 cms of cinnamon in branch
8 starred anise
1 nosey spoonful of grain fennel
It warms up the grain pepper and the cinnamon shaking a fire frying pan enters low and average until they loosen his aromas (about 3 minutes).
It leaves pepper it and the cinnamon cools off.
It grinds the pepper and the cinnamon with the anise starred, the nail and fennel until securing a fine powder.
Guard in a jar.
