We had this for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. On paper it sounded quite boring but it was actually delicious – especially with brown rice. Very healthy too!


  • 1 red pepper, finely chopped
  • 3 tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 red chillies, finely chopped
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • Vegetable oil for frying


  1. Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed pan and fry the chopped carrots for a few minutes
  2. Add the onion, chillies and pepper and fry for a further few minutes, or until the onions begin to go translucent
  3. Add the tomatoes and cook until the they break down
  4. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper before serving with rice
