I would give this recipe five stars except that the cooking time is very, very, very wrong. At 5pm, I reduced heat to low (step 3) and covered it. At 6pm, I went to check to see if the potatoes were done. They were completely raw. I turned up the heat to a 3 (medium-low) and covered it again. At 7:30pm, my husband and I ate it but without our son. We had to put him to bed after an instant Mac 'N Cheese dinner. Even after it cooked for two and a half hours (most of which was done on a higher temp than the recipe called for), my husband said it would have been better if it was cooked longer.
The flavors were great, but it's upsetting to have to wait hours to eat dinner when you're not expecting it. I'll make this again because it was delicious, but I'll cook it on medium-low for 2-3 hours next time (instead of low for the first hour).
I should add that I followed the recipe exactly except that I only put in a dash of salt, and I skipped the cayenne pepper because I just didn't see it in the recipe list. I did use the masala. The flavors were great.
