Top Review by MistressRach

I'm sorry, I really wanted this to be wonderful, but the cumin just really didn't work in my opinion. The finished dish just tasted wrong. Not Asian flavored at all. None of us were able to finish our (rather small) servings and we threw away the remainder. I plan to try this again using Chinese 5 spice in place of the cumin
