Comfort food that's not bland! I liked that the potatoes absorbed the flavors from the spices and seasonings. I didn't think the bell peppers (capsicum) cooked enough when added so late; I wish I had added them earlier. The flavor is a mix of savory, sweetish, and spice - it's almost a little like HP Sauce or worcestershire sauce.

Sueie, I DID eat this as a meal! Delicious with all the different spices. I only used 2 potatoes (sorry! it's all I had) but it turned out great. Since I love spicy stuff, I also added some crushed red pepper. Thanks for a flavorful and healthy meal!
