What went wrong with my roasted vegetable vindaloo or is Jamie Oliver just having a laugh?

I made this
tonight and it turned out sludgy and flavorless. I'm apparently not the only person
who had this problem. I'm actually pissed because usually when following recipes I get really good results- mainly from Fine Cooking magazine where everything turns out perfectly. I am triply annoyed because I also bought all the ingredients for the Empire Roasted Chicken
which I don't want to bother doing if it's going to turn out equally disappointing. Is this a thing with Jamie Oliver recipes? I feel like 'roasting' vegetables in a paste and water mix is more like stewing vegetables and the resulting appearances seem to agree (not Jamie's food stylist's version though, that's for sure). Has anyone tried this or the Empire Chicken before? Was there an error on my part of does the recipe he gives not seem to match the results he gets? (Don't bother answering with recipes are just the starting point- if the recipe gives steps, and I follow them to a T then I expect to get the pictured results. And this has generally been my experience up until this Jamie Oliver fiasco.)
(It really looks like he did something totally different- roasted all the veg (until very dark) separately, THEN combined with the liquids to get the colors he got. GRR!)
