Despite the cumin seed issue, the dish was wonderful. I added more Turmeric spice and for me it was great.
Addendum: I am so glad I found this website. I love Indian dishes as well as learning them. I make a delightful curry that I found years ago in a Yogi cookbook. Thank you!

I found this recipe on another cooking website and I bought the cumin seed at a local Indian food Grocery. I need to know what the word Crackle means when preparing the dish, I wonder if I cooked the cumin too long. I am cooking on an electric range top which I beleive makes all the difference. Question, should I wait until the first cumin seeds start to "pop" or should they be all gathering and simmering together or is that too long? Thank You Very Much!
