    1. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and shallots, and cook, stirring constantly, until lightly browned. Add a splash of the beef stock, green chilli and red chilli, and simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavours.
    2. Add the tomatoes, basil leaves, white wine and remaining beef stock. Bring to the boil. Dissolve cornflour in a small amount of the cream, and pour it and the rest of the cream into the pan. Return to the boil, and add the mussels. Cook until all of the shells have opened, about 5 minutes.
