فحّى القِدْرَ, inf. n. تَفْحِيَةٌ, He made the cooking-pot to have a large quantity of أَبَازِير [or seeds used in cooking, for seasoning the food: from فَحًا, q. v.]: (Ṣ,* Ḳ, TA:) or, accord. to Aboo-ʼAlee El-Ḳálee, he put, or threw, into the cookingpot, أَبَازِير, i. e. تَوَابِل. (TA.) It is said, by Z, [but with hardly any reason that I can see,] to be formed by transposition from the letters فوح thus combined. (TA.)
