Hi, Binnur!
Is it 12 tsp of cumin, or 1/2?
12 spoons seems to be a little bit too much, heh

Hello, I was wondering, What is the difference between this and musakka?

Moussaka basically is the cooked vegetables chopped into small pieces with small chunks of meat or ground beef and onions. The variety of moussaka comes from the main vegetable like eggplant or potato or zucchini or cauliflower or turnip used in it.
This meal doesn't have any main vegetable that gives the name to musakka:)
