    I made and reviewed,

    Spinach Mushroom Rice Bake Oman Style #492958 by Dienia B. which btw is not in the cookbook. It doesn't seem authentic though.

    Interestingly a spinach recipe again...

    It's acceptably close. It calls for ajwain but Dee put in thyme with ajwain as a sub. *I* would like to see more recipes using this spice since i have some!
    they said it was stronger than thyme is that your take ?


    Cook's Thesaurus: "ajwain = ajwain seed = carom seed = bishop's weed = ajowan = ajowan seed = ajwon = ajwan Pronunciation: AHJ-a-wahn Notes: These look like small caraway seeds, but they taste like a pungent version of thyme. Indian cooks like to sprinkle them on breads. Look for them in Indian markets. Substitutes: dried thyme (use more) OR cumin OR caraway."

    I went & dug mine out from under the fenugreek seeds...it looks like itty bitty aniseeds. it smells very vaguely like thyme. then I took a taste - POW! Those wee seeds pack a punch that reminded me of cumin. I can't say how it compares to caraway because I don't like the stuff.


    Do they taste at all like thyme to you?


    not really. to me it was closer to cumin. it really has it's own flavor like all other spices.

    its hard when you dont know what its supposed to taste like to post the recipe and be able to sub things. and like rose water, i can only do a little .where as some one used to it can do more , like spices , taste is sooo subjective , on 1 recipe 1 t of cumin overwhelmed them. and one of my recipes which was mid west comfort food ,they said not enough spices , mr picky if you use anything but pepper, he is on fire lol
