    was easy to prepare and cooked all day while at work. Tasted a bit bland not ure why perhaps i will add more spice next time  -  07 Apr 2012


    There was not enough flavour in this dish. I added one chilli and one red pepper, and extra garlic, still not enough so added the spices. It easy, but you do need to taste it as you go along to get this one right  -  04 May 2013
