    This was really tasty and went down well with everyone. My mum made it the day before me but had no paprika and used hot chili powder instead, she said it gave it a nice little kick, I had only sweet paprika and found it could have done with some chili, just need to experiment by tasting in future for flavourings but such a great tasty one pot dish. Will be making it again very soon especially with this cold miserable weather we are having.
