1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
2 tomatoes, finely chopped
1 onion, finely chopped
2 hot red chillies, finely chopped
1 carrot, finely chopped


Fry the carrots in a pan for a few minutes then add the onion, chillies and bell pepper.

Fry for five minutes more then add the tomatoes. Cook until the tomatoes break down and form a mush. Season and serve with rice or Pap.
