(Passable) cumin substitute?

Traceybelle | Jun 21, 2010 10:43 AM

Of course nothing tastes like cumin except cumin. Unfortunately, my best friend has a complete intolerance for cumin and gets horribly sick if she has something with cumin in it.

We both love curry and it's hard to find recipes without cumin. Simply leaving the cumin out is always an option (we do that now and it's still pretty good), but I'm looking for some other spice I could add in to sort of round out the flavors and maybe gain back some of what the flavor loses without the cumin.

Any thoughts?
