What a waste of food. Edible is the best I can say. It came out looking NOTHING like the photo. No sauce added? Not enough spice. Bland and blah. Don't waste time, money, and food.

Hi all - We have checked the recipe and 1/2 teaspoon of coriander is correct. We apologize for any confusion. -The Editors of RecipeLion

Well, after over a year the recipe I'm reading still says 1/2 teaspoon. Hmm. Should it be a teaspoon?
