Questions, Comments & Reviews

What is curcuma? wikipedia says that it is a genus of the ginger family. I also looks kind of like a flower. I also looks like tumeric root. Can someone clarify? If we can't find it in our local grocery, can you suggest a substitution?

The recipe looks yummy BTW. Cheers...

Yum! Can't wait to try these.. :)
