Although the recipe explicity states that you not use ground cumin as it would overpower the dressing couldn't you use ground cumin if you say halved the amount?
I am in the mode of using up what I have right now particularly in my spice rack.
I have ground cumin but not cumin seed and would rather use that than make another purchase.
Besides aren't you basically making ground cumin out of your cumin seeds by using a spice grinder?
If you are trying to use up your spices then I would say go ahead and use some ground cumin. As for the ground cumin being the same as using cumin seeds and a spice grinder, the result will not be exactly the same as the seeds that are ground were not ground to the same degree as ground cumin. The finer the spice is ground the more the more it will permeate the entire dressing. Does that make sense? Hope this helps - cheers!
