Ingredients

Method

1.Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium to high heat. Add onion, spices, capsicum and garlic. Cook, stirring, for about 2 minutes, or until the onion is soft. Add mince. Cook, stirring, for about 5 to 6 minutes, or until mince starts to brown.
2.Add tomato paste, tomatoes, water, beans and carrot. Bring to boil. Simmer, uncovered, for 6 to 7 minutes, or until the mixture thickens. Season with salt and pepper.
