    Jintan Manis is Fennel in English,A lot of people get confuse if a recipe said only Jintan,especially Indonesian recipe,so used Cumin.Indonesian People(especialy from West Jawa)do not like this cumin,they said smell Jamu(herbal tasted)awful,But some Indonesian who are living overseas donot know the difference if the recipe mention Jintan,they think O well it is Cumin(instead they meant jintan manis)Then as a result the food spoiled without knowing it.Some Overseas Indonesian making lemper with cumin taste awfull.because they misunderstood with Jintan manis,Sayang/pitty,No one make lemper with cumin,only fennel a little bit only and coriander.It looks a small mistake but the result is bad bad bad.
