I really liked this, a bit of a mixed review by the non-adventurous one. I followed the recipe pretty closely, except that I briefly toasted some already ground cumin in a dry skillet. I found it very tasty. i had eyeballed the ingredients a bit, so I had some of the filling left over - it made a nice side for my lunch.
