I have just had this for a light dinner, and it was magnificent. It was so simple and tasty. I followed the instructions exactly. I was dubious about the brown sugar, but it really was a wonderful addition. I am not sure what the saffron was meant to add. I cooked the peas for 12 mins exactly. I will make again, the pantry aspect of this is unbelievable.
