Has anyone ever tried this ? I hope that link works..
If so, is it any good and can it be adapted? I haven't got groundnut oil and can't be arsed roasting cumin seeds etc.

I wouldn't worry about not having groundnut oil, use whatever oil you've got. Have you got ground cumin and coriander? And if you've got cardomom, you're going to have to take the seeds out whatever aren't you? I would have thought the recipe will taste quite different if you left them out altogether but I would substitute ground instead of toasting seeds, can't see the difference would be that dramatic. It's a bit of a hassly recipe isn't it? Haven't ever made it though.

We've been given a load of huge parsnips by a friend from her allotment and I don't want to just let them rot and although I love roast parsnips, I think we'd be eating them every day for months. Sounds like it would be nice but I'm not a fiddly cook, I'm more of a lob it all in the pot type.
I'll give it a go!
Thanks WWWitch!

Trefusis, thanks for that. It's just that I don't actually have seeds but have a cupboard full of ground spices.
And I don't have a bramley, just eaters like Pink Lady and Braeburn.
It's only for DP and me though so if it's not quite right, I don't suppose it matters!

I'd leave out the cardomom then and use ground coriander and cumin. You'll get the gist of the recipe.
