    i made this for pre-christmas lunch nibbles and it was so good. i didnt have a pestal and morter to grind the spices though. so i used a metal bowl and a metal icecream scoop instead : ) took a lot of muscle and wrist movement to grind it up but was worth it.  -  10 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
