    1. Heat oil in a pan, fry the mince, stirring often. Stir in tomatoes and spices. Top with 60ml of water, and bring to the boil for 10 minutes. Thicken sauce with cornflour and bring to the boil again. Serve once it's thickened to your desired consistency.


    If you don't have onion powder, use garlic granules instead.
