Recipe is good, but be careful of the spices: chili powder, paprika, and saffron are hard to balance. I'd recommend a little paprika, more saffron, and add the basil and chili at the end to make sure it's the way you like it. My tongue, at least, was baffled by the battle between paprika, basil, and saffron.
