I liked it, but I think it need a little something more. Very filling and easy to make.

I was happy with how easy and quick this recipe was to make, however, the combination of spices just didn't do it for me. I found it kind of bland. I think I was expecting something a bit spicier!

This was a fantastic dinner. It was delicious, easy to prepare, something different, and very cheap. I would strongly recommend it for any busy family on a budget, looking to add some variety to the menu.
