There is little difference between what is called red, brown or black mustard, although some references suggest that black is a slightly hotter variety. Whole mustard seeds are an important element in several spice mixtures, including a Bengali mixture called panch phoran. Since mustard only becomes hot when it is mixed with water, generous quantities of whole mustard seeds can be cooked in oil or butter to impart a delicious nutty flavour to Indian curries and simply steamed vegetables (try red mustard seeds with cauliflower).
