"Its an excellent dish, and as per another review, my cookbook recipe suggested a 1/2 cup ground cumin. The above amount (1/2tsp) was used. Its perfect for dinner or lunch. I don't know if I would make it for company but I'm thrilled at how easy it was. I used Tofu to make it a full meal."

"In the taste of home cookbook, Cooks who care, p.328, there is a missprint it calls for 1/2 a cup of cumin. We didn't use that much ofcourse, but still not too impressed"
