While watching Masterchef India, I liked Radhicka Agrawals recipe- Sesame Crisps with Spiced Honey.  In that recipe, one of the ingredients used was Five Spice Powder.

The chef described the powder as masala having sour, bitter, sweet, pungent, and salty taste. I tried to find our the recipe from net. Here is the recipe of 5 spice powder.
