I followed this recipe to a tee, adding all of the optional ingredients (the water, corn starch and the black pepper) and didn't really like it. I had my mom and step-dad taste it first and they said it was sweet and I asked them if it needed more spice and more salt. My mom said she doesn't know if it's supposed to be a sweet taste or what, because she wasn't use to it. They said more salt at least. Then I taste it and it was just sweet and they were right. This is why I knocked off a star. So after I finished it, I added another 1 tablespoon of the kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon of Turmeric, another 1/8 teaspoon of curry, about 3 dashes of cumin (I didn't feel like searching for another measuring spoon), 3 dashes of ginger, and I decided it might need a little more spice, so I added 3 dashes of cayenne pepper. I stired it and they said it taste better. My mom said she liked it and would eat it. She said it was a little thick though., I should have not added the corn starch since the potatoes ended up making it thick after I simmered it for 5 more minutes after adding the corn starch and also I forgot to turn the heat back down when I added the extra seasoning (i just wanted to let it simmer a few more minutes). It's still good though. I added maybe a cup more of vegetable broth, then one more dash of kosher salt. I'm scared that adding more broth will water out the spices. It's kinda thick to me, but good. I might put it over Quinoa to get more protein! I give it 4 stars!
