Vegetable chilli


Makes 4 - 6 portions

For the sauce:

1 large onion, chopped
1-2 cloves garlic, crushed
1-2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 red and 1 green pepper, stalk and seeds removed, and chopped
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
2 x 400g/14oz cans chopped tomatoes
1 heaped tbsp tomato purée

Heat the oil in a large saucepan and fry the onion and garlic together with the chilli and cumin, until the onions are softening.
