A traditional favourite!

I'm sorry, but this dish was lacking in flavour and spice and was rather bland. I'm someone who dislikes spicy food, but even I had to sprinkle some extra pepper on my plate, but that didn't help much either. Perhaps some paprika or red chili flakes would give this otherwise nice dish some bite!
